youth thrive here
Our six after-school camp sites and one summer camp site are staffed by a dedicated, caring team of site directors and lead teachers, with two staff members per site, or a minimum of one staff member for every 15 kids.
Carly joined Camp Fire in 2017 as the program assistant. Throughout the years, her role here has shifted, and she has found her niche as the Office Manager and Registrar for our After School and Summer Camp programs. She has many duties at Camp Fire; registration, developing monthly USDA approved snack menus, purchasing of snacks and operational supplies, and site paperwork just to name a few.
Carly was born and raised in Walla Walla and enjoys cooking, baking, playing with her dog Wilson, and spending quality time with friends and family. She graduated from Walla Walla Community College in 2017 and has since found her spark here at Camp Fire. Her favorite thing about her role here is the relationships she gets to make with the Camp Fire staff and families.
Natalie is a Walla Walla native with a deep-rooted love for the community. She has experience in technical writing, freelance tutoring, team management, and has even worked as a substitute teacher/para in the Walla Walla School District. Since joining the team in September 2022, she is thrilled to work at an organization that provides Walla Walla kiddos with exciting new opportunities and a safe, fun place to find their spark after school lets out for the day. As Program Director, she handles marketing, policy writing, staff management, day-to-day programs operations, and running Camp Fire Walla Walla's social media and web presence.
Outside of Camp Fire, Natalie loves reading, playing with her two orange cats Keanu and Zuko, and wandering around Downtown Walla Walla.
