Get Involved

Philanthropy: The desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially by the generous donation of money to good causes.







Since 1932, thousands of children have learned first hand the values of leadership, teamwork, perseverance, respect for themselves and others, All while preserving nature, singing at a club meeting or around a campfire, roasting s’mores, making new friends, and participating in all that Camp Fire has to offer.

Supporting Camp Fire North Central Washington allows us to do more for the youth of Chelan, Douglas, Okanogan, and Adams counties.  Contributing to our council allows us to continue to connect youth with nature, empower them to make a difference in their communities, and give them the skills and support they need to succeed in the future.  These are some of the ways you can support us in this cause!

With your support we can help the youth of today create a better future for all of us tomorrow. Your gifts make a powerful difference, especially for those who need our help the most.

Adopt a Cabin

Are you or your organization interested in leaving your mark at camp Zanika?  You can help camp by volunteering to preserve one or more of our cabins or program areas for future generations of campers by adopting and maintaining one of them. It is the responsibility of the “adopter” to repair, maintain, and overall keep the building in good condition, either by purchasing the materials and doing the work, or hiring someone else. A sign will be placed on the building stating by whom it was adopted. For more information about the adopt a cabin program, please contact us!


Camp Fire volunteers make a meaningful difference, whether it’s devoting time to youth programming, fundraising, event planning, serving on our board of directors, or in other ways that they help determine.  As a Camp Fire volunteer, you are provided with training and staff support specific to the role you select.  You’ll give service to others, get involved in your community, be recognized for your achievements, and have some fun yourself!
