Hammocks are no longer limited to napping in the backyard. Today you will find hammock gatherings everywhere. There are Instagram and Facebook groups dedicated to “hammocking” and nearly every college campus seems to have a designated place for people to hang with each other. This past week I thought I had wondered into a Himalayan base camp due to the colorful hammocks hanging on every ridge and porch at Sanborn camps. They are a great low-tech way for our campers to relax and bond over the day’s activities.

It’s time to find a couple of trees and join them!
