WHERE YOUTH DISCOVER WHO THEY ARE

Camp Fire programming allows participants to explore their sparks, learn to make healthy choices, develop social skills, build new talents and have fun. Our goal is to provide youth with opportunities to cultivate their inner passions, skills and attributes (or “Sparks”) to stimulate Thriving - a forward, purposeful motion toward achieving one’s full potential.

While our programs and services meet the needs of today’s world, they retain the values of self-sufficiency, service, outdoor appreciation, leadership and character that have been the foundations of Camp Fire from the beginning.
