Serving youth from ages 3 to 18, Camp Fire helps kids learn and play in comfortable, informal settings. Additionally, our co-ed programs allow parents to consolidate schedules for both their daughters and sons.
Clubs can be found in neighborhoods, schools, or community centers. Each group is individualized by age, location and meeting times however clubs can have multiple age groups. Clubs are led by two club leaders who are typically parents of club kids or Camp Fire volunteers.

Camp Fire participants, while guided by a caring adult or group of adults, will take a journey down various trails that will ultimately cover the following enrichment areas:
Camp Fire participants will journey down 5 different trails throughout each program progression. In order to complete a trail, youth must complete certain meeting requirements.
As youth participants get older, the objectives throughout each trail cater to their developmental milestones and will progressively encourage youth participants to advance their knowledge and understanding. Group Leaders have access to curriculum guides pertaining to each program level. Each guide is broken down by trail and provides meeting lessons for leaders to then seek input from their group participants.
Young people want to shape the world.
Camp Fire provides the opportunity to find their spark, lift their voice, and discover who they are.
In Camp Fire, it begins now.
