Camp Fire has a rich history of working with youth and we have not strayed from the ideals set forth by our founders by providing a nurturing, constructive, and fun environment for young people to discover their sparks, the unique skills, passions, and interests. Coupled with a program that encourages young ones to adopt a growth mindset. In Camp Fire, youth chart their own course to healthy habits, community leadership, and a connection to nature in collaboration with trained, caring adults.
As one of the nation’s leading youth development organizations, Camp Fire takes pride in its long-standing commitment to providing quality, all-inclusive programming for the communities it serves. Camp Fire’s Statement of Inclusion: Camp Fire works to realize the dignity and worth of each individual and to eliminate human barriers based on all assumptions that prejudge individuals. Designed and implemented to reduce sexual, racial, religious, and cultural stereotypes and to foster positive intercultural relationships, in Camp Fire, everyone is welcome.
Helping youth become who they want to be takes time and encouragement. It takes paying attention to what sparks a passion. At Camp Fire we help youth discover their spark.
