What is #KintailCampfire?

We all cherish the memories made around the campfire. The stories we share, the songs we sing, and the snacks everyone always hopes for seconds of. This week for #KintailAtHome, we invite you to join us for a #KintailCampfire! Maybe you have a fire pit, a chimenea, or a fireplace at home, or maybe this will be a time to sit together in the backyard or living room! Share photos and videos of your time together and take a look/ listen at what other Kintail families get up to. We may not be sitting beside each other- but #KintailCampfire will be a night where we’ll be able to sing a song and know that somewhere out there a friend is singing along too.

Bring Home the Music
