Camp Fire Clubs
Camp Fire Clubs are delivered during the school year, primarily
serving ages 3-17. Across the country, youth participate in indoor and outdoor
age-appropriate small group activities inw hich they can explore personal
interests, learn to make healthy choices, develop social skills and have
fun.Clubs help girls and boys explore the world, exercise their creativity,
participate in community service, and gain a sense of belonging while having fun
and making new friends.
Club programs are age-specific and connect youth with caring,
trained adults in a small group atmosphere. Clubs meet regularly throughout the
year,and youth often remain involved for many years. Club participants choose
from a variety of fun and educational activities and projets. Family members are
encouraged to participate and support their youth involved in our clubs. Family
members become actively engaged and often tell us how much they enjoy connecting
with families they would never otherwise meet.
Camp Fire Club Programs have 4 important
