Hallmark Channel Movie: Campfire Kiss Synopsis

Single mom Dana has a lot on her plate as a math teacher in a local school while raising a 13-year-old son, Arthur, all alone. But something is off between the once-close mother and son duo. Now, it seems as if Dana is becoming disconnected from Arthur. She knows that he is growing up and becoming more independent. But she still needs to find a way to rekindle their close relationship.

Dana decides that the perfect way to do that is by going on a camping trip in the winter wilderness with her son. To prepare, Dana makes a trip down to the local sporting goods shop, where she meets Steve, the owner of the store. Right away, his attitude is off-putting to Dana, prompting her to leave as quickly as possible.

However, fate brings Steve and Dana together again when they both turn up at the same campfire outing that they’ve have signed up for. Annoyed that Steve is actually one of her neighbors, Dana storms off into the woods for a little exploration with her son. But when they become lost, and it looks like Dana and Arthur might not make it back to their camp site, the icy cold tension between Steve and Dana begins to warm up after she eventually finds her way back and decides to be more friendly.

With the help of a counselor at the site, Dana realizes that she has been a little too controlling and protective of Arthur, which could have the opposite effect of what she wants for him. She also decides that opening up to Steve just might open up the doorway to love.
