Stories Around the Campfire, with guest storyteller John Black

Help us welcome the warmer weather with a family evening outside. We will provide the beautiful farm at sunset, the campfire, and marshmallows for toasting. We will hear some Native American creation stories from John Black and we will then invite others to share their own campfire tales. 

Come out and enjoy an evening of storytelling around the campfire with John. Storytelling is an ancient art and has been and continues to be a very important activity in all human cultures.  He has a large collection of stories, mainly from Native American folklore or “Why” stories. He also has several stories that he has written and many retelling of stories from his childhood. John attended a Master Storytellers workshop several years ago where he was able to hone the craft and learn from many wonderful storytellers. John has spent much of his adult life teaching and reconnecting people with nature and using storytelling in the process.

John lives in Browns Mills in a little purple house with his wife Christine and their 2 daughters. They share the house with Tsuki, the dog and Marcel the cat. They share the yard with a myriad of insects, spiders, birds, and many other creatures.
