Summer Day Camp
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, values, and attributes-- or sparks, as we like to call them.
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.
For almost 100 years, Camp Fire has offered children safe, fun, enriching summer camp experiences.
We look forward to seeing you in summer of 2023! More information will be available soon regarding scheduling and location. Make sure to sign up for our newsletter if you're interested.

Summer Camp is open to children entering first through sixth grades. Children must have completed kindergarten. Exceptions can be made for younger siblings of Camp Fire families and children who have already participated in our pre-k Camp Fire program.
Camp is open from 7:30am - 5:30pm, Monday - Friday. Supervision of your children cannot be provided outside of our program hours. The activities, field trips, and events of our Camp Day take place from 9am - 3pm, with self-directed free time taking place during the first few and last few hours of camp.
Morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack will be provided each day. Check the Camp bulletin board for menu information. You can send your child with their own snacks and lunch if desired. Please DO NOT send anything with nuts, including peanut butter.
Summer Camp is primarily an outdoor program. To help keep your children safe and comfortable, have them come with appropriate clothing and items.
Sunscreen - Remember to apply generously to your child each morning. You can also send sunscreen with your child to apply throughout the day.
Water bottle - Send a water bottle with your child's name written on it in permanent marker.
Shoes - Closed-toe shoes are preferred. Sandals are okay, but please no flip flops.
Bathing Suit - Send a bathing suit with your child EVERY DAY. Campers will have water play throughout the week.
Towel - Remember to include a towel for swimming or water play.
Water Shoes - Water shoes are a good option for water play. They are great for protecting your child from sharp objects on the ground.
Please mark all of your child's belongings with their first and last name!
Please leave all toys and games at home! Camp Fire is not responsible for campers' personal items.
A weekly schedule can be found on the camp bulletin board. We encourage parents to view the schedule and be familiar with the planned weekly activities.
