Camp Zanika is a ACA  camp (American Camp Association) and we will adhere to guidelines for delivery of camp as developed by the ACA in partnership with the CDC. Camp Fire North Central Washington is cautiously optimistic that we will be able to offer summer camps to youth beginning in late-June. Please note that these are times of uncertainty, but we will do everything in our power to protect campers and staff. Please know that safety is our number one priority.

Changes we plan to take include fever checks at the beginning of programming for campers and staff, common areas will be sanitized at a higher rate. Campers will sleep head-to-toe to promote distance while sleeping. We will continue to work closely with local, state, and federal authorities and various other resources to ensure the safety of all staff and participants.

We look forward to providing a sense of community to our youth while doing all in our power to keep them safe and look forward to welcoming your child to a Camp Fire camp this summer. Please note that all deposits are not refundable- – please see our refund policy for further information.

  “When I, as a nervous mom, approached counselors and advisors with my oh-so-many questions, they met me with honest and open answers. I felt at ease sending my 7 year old son there. He had so much fun, he asked to go back a second time that year!” – Jayma M
