The Camp Counselor Pledge – Camp Fire Central Puget Sound

With Camp Fire Day Camp in Seattle wrapped up and summer in the review mirror, we’re reflecting on the impact of our volunteers, staff, teen leaders, and campers.

As a community, our staff worked together to create the Camp Counselor Pledge, a guiding light for their work this summer and into the future. The pledge highlights the values of our staff and organization, and how silly games are actually really important! Read their pledge and make sure you’re on our newsletter list for updates on 2024 day camp registration information.
