Start a club!
Serving youth from ages 3 to 18, Camp Fire’s co-ed clubs help boys and girls learn and play side by side in comfortable, informal settings.
Clubs can be created in neighborhoods, schools and sometimes at churches or community centers.
If you’re interested in leading a club at your school or organization, contact Rachel Catrell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Little Stars: Pre-Kindergarten (Ages 3-5)
More than just a play date. The Little Stars program provides the opportunity for young children to master the art of socialization, learn how to work together, and skills like taking turns and sharing. Projects are age-appropriate and serve as an introduction to Camp Fire.
Starflight: Kindergarten – 2nd grade
Boys and girls learn responsibility, decision-making and other valuable skills through a variety of projects focusing on family, nature and the outdoors, safety, science, health, community service, art, music and drama. They learn while working together and having fun. All projects are designed to fit the abilities and interests of this age level. Recognition is an important component of the Starflight program, and youth receive emblems or certificates after completing a project.
We believe in the power of nature to awaken the senses and the desire to learn. Our camp and outdoor programs allow kids and teens to unplug from technology for a full week (or more!) and explore, grow, challenge themselves, make new friends, get out of their comfort zone, gain confidence, and make powerful memories that will have an impact on their lives.
Whether it’s overnight/resident camp, day camp, or environmental education, we teach critical life skills and offer activities like swimming, archery, hiking, crafts, sports, theater, etc.
We encourage campers to make their own decisions, have fun, and seek adventure—with our highly trained, caring staff by their side every step of the way. Stay tuned for more information about Summer Camp 2020.
Young people want to shape the world.
Camp Fire provides the opportunity to find their spark, lift their voice, and discover who they are.
In Camp Fire, it begins now.
