“Help Us Weather this Crisis So Kids In Our Community Have a Place to Heal and Reconnect Together.”
Dear Camp Fire Friends:
In these uncertain and challenging times, we all need hope and reassurance that at some point, the COVID-19 pandemic will pass, and we can all return to some semblance of normalcy.
It will happen, and when it does, youth in our community will need Camp Fire more than ever as they heal, reconnect, and rediscover the unique sense of belonging they happily experience in our programs.
With the health and safety of our families and staff being our highest priority, we decided to cancel our spring programs, the financial impact of which will exceed $200,000.
Heading into this year, we could hardly contain our excitement for the many events we had planned to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Camp Sealth. Like everyone, we have had to adjust these plans, but will continue to explore ways to safely mark this important milestone.
We need you to help us emerge resilient and ready to provide safe and inclusive spaces for youth to learn, laugh and grow their self-confidence in a joyful, supportive environment.
These times will pass and once they do, Camp Fire will be here for you and your family, offering a welcoming place to gather around a campfire.
Take Care of Yourselves & Each Other,
Kathy Gullickson Jones
Board President, and Camp Fire Alum
