What Makes Camp Fire Day Camps Unique?
For more than 80 years, Camp Fire has been bringing the magic of Day Camp to your neighborhood!
Small Group Philosophy
Campers are assigned to a group with others that are in the same grade or of the same age. Our groups are small, with 6-10 kids assigned to one adult staff or an experienced older teen counselor along with at least one assistant teen counselor. We have seen the incredible benefits of organizing our campers into small groups – it provides the perfect opportunity for team-building, developing friendships and growing together as they try new activities and learn new skills! It also means that your child receives personalized care and attention for their entire stay with us!
Camp Fire was established with a strong foundation in providing positive outdoor experiences for youth and it is fundamental to our mission, core values, and programs. We believe in teaching kids about the natural world not just letting them experience it passively. At our Day Camps, campers learn about nature through hands-on activities including beach walks, nature hikes, fire-building, outdoor cooking and safety classes.
Special Events, Themes & Traditions
Before camp starts, volunteer planning committees for each Day Camp choose the theme, crafts, games, and special events for the week. Many of our Day Camps also have special Camp Fire traditions including camp spirits and mascots!
Camp Fire believes that all kids, regardless of their financial situation, should be able to experience the magic of camp! Financial assistance is available for families in need thanks to generous donations from businesses, community organizations and friends of Camp Fire.
