What is Camp Prime Time?

How it all began

In 1982, two men who had enjoyed the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest were helping two boys with disabilities fish, boat, and enjoy the wilderness. The idea struck; why not find a place to help those who are physically less fortunate learn about the outdoors and experience nature at its best?

To this day camp is held every year full of families looking for adventure while spending time with others facing the struggles and triumphs that come with disabilities. I had a chance to volunteer one weekend, staying in a cabin and cooking meals for the families and it was such a magical time.

Pumpkin Carving Tips

  1. Find a pumpkin that is smooth with no soft spots
  2. Use a serrated spoon for better gutting and don't be afraid to remove layers from the inside because sometimes those babies are thick
  3. Trace out your design beforehand and use a toothpick to outline the design on your pumpkin
  4. Shave your pumpkin instead of carving. Use all kinds of techniques and think outside the box
  5. Light her up with candles or a battery-operated glow for hours in any weather conditions

LOOK: How Halloween has changed in the past 100 years

Stacker compiled a list of ways that Halloween has changed over the last 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear trick-or-treating. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that changed the ways that Halloween was celebrated over time. Many of these traditions were phased out over time. But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.
