6th – 8th Grade

Youth in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades may participate in the Discovery program or Teens in Action. In Discovery, Camp Fire youth explore their roles as members of families, schools, churches, neighborhoods, teams, or other groups. Torch bearer projects also provide youth opportunities to explore areas of interest specific to them or their groups.

Discovery participants and advisers share leadership responsibility. Participants make club plans, take action, analyze and evaluate their efforts. They learn problem solving and decision-making with current social and personal issues.

Camp Fire  programs are designed to deliver asset-based, measurable outcomes for both youth and adults. They are based on the 40 Developmental Assets, as defined by the Search Institute, a widely respected research organization. These assets are positive experiences, opportunities and personal qualities that all children and adolescents need to become responsible, successful and caring adults. Kids discover and build their own developmental assets in Camp Fire  every day through clubs, camping and other activities!
