CAMP FIRE STAFF
Camp Fire staff members are carefully selected, background-checked, and trained. Our staff meet licensing standards set by the Washington State Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) and hold First Aid, CPR, and Food Handler certifications. Initial training and ongoing staff development focus on helping staff provide high-quality, developmentally-appropriate learning opportunities, guidance, and fun for our campers.

A healthy snack is provided daily. With written notice from parents, Camp Fire will make a reasonable effort
to accommodate kids' food allergies or other dietary requirements. Kids are welcome to bring snacks from home.
The afternoon schedule typically provides about 20 minutes of focused and quiet time for kids
to work on homework or read. Staff will monitor, encourage, and offer help to kids during this time. However, campers are responsible for their own assignments. Kids who do not have homework are expected to read or participate in quiet activities during this time.
If school is cancelled or students are sent home early due to poor weather conditions, Camp Fire's After School
programs will also be canceled. If there is a two-hour morning delay, programs will run as normal.
Camp Fire After-School programs are licensed and accept state subsidy payments. For more information,

Thanks to grant funds and generous support from our donors, Camp Fire is able to offer scholarships
