Camp Fire Groups are continuing to grow! In the past year, we have welcomed seven new groups to our council, from all over King County, with another few already requested to be set up by the end of the year.
This summer, over 60 Camp Fire members took in several baseball outings to cheer on the Seattle Mariners and Tacoma Rainiers as well as volunteering in our community.
We are also thrilled to share that three of our exemplary teen leaders from The Alicorns Group are starting their journey towards earning their WoHeLo Awards. This is the highest award one can earn in Camp Fire and takes an incredible amount of hard work and years of dedication.
With a combined history of over 20 years of Camp Fire experience, The Alicorn’s first advocacy will be to design, market and run a Day Camp this fall for Camp Fire kids. They plan to lead activities including fire building, outdoor cooking, a scavenger hunt, rock and fingernail painting, a slime station and outdoor games.
When asked why they chose to undertake such a challenging journey, Group Member Zoe shared, “I want to explore more about myself and my community” with Mia L. adding “I hope to grow as a person and explore more areas of my life I might find interest in.” Lastly, Mia W shared that she “hopes to strengthen and prepare herself for college.”
The girls expect to receive their awards somewhere between the years 2026 and 2027.
