Themed camping an annual event at Silver Springs

KENT, Ohio — Stow Parks & Recreation Department employee Ken Barnhart has been working with Silver Springs Campground for almost four decades. During that time, he has seen a lot of camping clubs, Scout troops, or groups of friends camping together at the facility / often times with a “theme” attached to the campout.

“Scout troops might be working toward a particular merit badge, so much of the troops’ activities center on accomplishing those requirements,” Barnhart explains. “Camping clubs might have a dinner theme for their Saturday night potluck dinner. And, sometimes, a group of friends might do something special together such as placing small flags around the perimeter of their campsite on July 4th weekend, or placing jack-o-lanterns by their site marker posts for Halloween.”
