Thanks to your support, Camp Fire Central Puget Sound is leading the charge to build on a cherished tradition and chart the future of our WoHeLo (Work, Health, Love) Awards. Our goal: to give more youth the chance to prove and hone their leadership skills, work ethic and commitment to community service.

Now, any high schooler involved in any of our teen leadership programs — not just Camp Fire groups — can strive for a WoHeLo award by completing three hands-on and in-depth advocacy projects, among other rigorous requirements. With feedback from other councils across the country and Camp Fire’s National Youth Advisory Cabinet, we updated our curriculum to reflect the many ways we champion diversity and inclusion, and to modernize language about financial literacy, healthy dating relationships and more.

We’re proud to be the first Camp Fire council in the nation to take this important step — building on tradition and charting WoHeLo’s future.
