More About Camp Fire
We’ve been proudly serving Kansas City area families and youth for 90 years. We believe in the power of nature to awaken the senses and the desire to learn! Read what other parents and youth have said about our camps.
A fun, productive summer
At camp, youth from different backgrounds develop important skills, such as socialization, self-reliance, problem solving, and an appreciation of and commitment to the natural environment. Participants make their own decisions, have fun, and seek adventure!
Campers will enjoy archery, hiking, swimming, arts and crafts, and other activities led by experienced, caring, and fun counselors. At Camp Fire, campers embark on a five-day exploration to find their spark and create a camp experience that is truly unique to their interests.
Everyone is welcome at Camp Fire
We are inclusive. And that’s not just talk. We live that philosophy by welcoming children, youth and adults regardless of race, religion, socioeconomic status, disability, sexual orientation or other identification of diversity. Camp Fire is committed to coeducation, providing opportunities for boys, girls, and their families to grow, together. In Camp Fire, everyone is welcome.
Nature is in our nature
When kids get to learn how beautiful their world is, they can make it even better.
We emphasize fun ways to explore nature and learn how to protect it. Whether in the inner city or in a camp, the environment provides a perfect laboratory for discovery, curiosity, compassion, and concern. Youth are at their best when they can embrace these traits.
Young people want to shape the world. Let’s show them how to begin.
