YBRA Firepit 1998

The Fire Pit at the Point was constructed by Penn State field school students and alumni in June 1998.  It is now one of the most popular gathering places in camp because of the view from the Point. It was constructed of unusual regional rocks, including Stillwater cumulates. The Fire Pit is normally used for its intended purpose only during the early summer, as fires are not allowed any time the fire danger exceeds "Low." At other times, an antique lantern is used as the "fire" to light gatherings.
