It’s truly the small things that drive all of us, but it’s the strength and shear numbers of us that builds our sister, warrior tribe.

It gave me permission to slow down, take a breath, and figure out what I crave in my life.

Hosted by Melody Biringer & Renessa Strong.

“The creative spark for the event came from a deep need within myself,” says CRAVE Founder Melody Biringer. “When we gather around the campfire, whether in the woods or a candle at the dinner table, let our hair down and breathe out our real truth, magic happens. Friendships are formed. Sometimes all we need are authentic listeners. Urban Campfire is all about giving permission NOT to have it all together.” ~ Melody Biringer, CRAVE founder

“At the core of almost every woman, is a little girl that wants to enjoy their time with their girlfriends under the stars. I am that Woman! I am inspired to create a community where all women of all backgrounds and of all ages, can come together and feel like they belong. Where laughter, pajamas and sharing our life happen without judgement and we open our hearts to creating special moments.” ~ Renessa Strong
