Camp Fire provides a nurturing, constructive and fun environment for young people to discover their sparks—unique skills, passions, and interests—and adopt a growth mindset. They chart their own course to healthy habits, community leadership, and connection to nature in collaboration with trained, caring adults. And, in turn, Camp Fire youth give back by sharing those skills in their communities.
Every Camp Fire program employs our framework for thriving, a research-based, measurable approach to youth development.
This approach encourages youth to build positive, sustained relationships and learn life skills that include self-reflection and goal management, while practicing these skills in valued home, school, and community activities.
