Kids & teens learn how to succeed NOW, through:

THRIVE{OLOGY}

Discover sparks, gain self-confidence, and learn life-changing life skills to thrive now. Thrive{ology} is our research-based program framework founded on the pillars of Social Emotional Learning (SEL), and it works.

INCLUSION & DIVERSITY

Any kid or teen, from any kind of family, from any walk of life, is welcome at Camp Fire. We have an official Inclusion Policy and are outspoken about our long-time commitment to diversity.

TRAINED, CARING STAFF

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.
