Supportive mentors and adult champions are key. We call our highly trained staff  “Spark Champions,” because they are experts at what they do and know how to guide youth on their journey to thriving.

“Camp Fire accepted my daughters; they took part in the same activities as everybody else…”

I had four children, two sons, Bill and John, and twin daughters, Mary Lee and Jane. My daughters are blind and, from the start, I instilled in them a strength of purpose. When the twins were about eleven, the Camp Fire Girls accepted them as regular members. They joined with the understanding that they would be expected to take part in the same activities as everybody else. On overnight hikes, they would joke with their fellow campers, ‘What do you mean you’re afraid of the dark? There’s nothing to it!’
