The father of Giants remembers it like it was yesterday, “I was at a church conference and a soon to be close friend share from the pulpit how their family would go on Camp Hale each year. They would do many family building activities – they even made a Camp Hale family flag. They made Camp Hale special. That day we, mother and father of Giants, decided that we would start embarking on adventures and call each Camp Goodman.” Goodman Giants elevated the structure of family vacations due to the example they learned from the Hale family.
What makes Camp Goodman? Start with 6 Goodmans*, specifically plan including a published camp manual, add a dash of matching T-shirts, sprinkle in some merit badges, sing camp songs, allow adventure, and Camp Goodman became a Goodman Giants tradition!
What makes Goodman Giants? Goodmans do of course. The Goodman Giants are Shelly, Nick, Savannah, Boston, Houston, and Tacoma.
