It’s been a very busy and productive spring for Camp Fire.
Our Board of Directors and Staff Team are in the midst of developing a new three-year strategic plan that will see us through 2025.
At the center of this plan is expanding our diversity, equity and inclusion efforts holistically throughout the organization. Specifically, centering the needs of our current staff and volunteers of color and continuing to increase the diversity of our staff team and board of directors.
I am excited to also share that we are partnering with Domokur Architects, a national architecture firm that specializes in camping. They are going to lead us through a master planning process that will help us protect and preserve Camp Sealth, which is now over 100 years old. Their team will be spending a week at camp to examine the site, meet with our staff team, board of directors and other key stakeholders to develop a plan to prioritize and guide the critical capital improvements needed at camp to ensure its sustainability for our next quarter century.
All of these steps will help us in our mission of creating an organization where all young people thrive and have equitable opportunities for self-discovery, community connections, and engagement with nature.
Yours in gratitude,
Rick Taylor (he/him)
