The best way to build a fire is to start small. Campfires are built using small sticks and twigs called kindling. With proper kindling a strong campfire can be built quickly. The Kindling Program supports the Operational Expenses of an Iowa United Methodist Camp to ensure that camping ministry will continue for years.
