All About Day Camp

Day Campers with counselorWhat Makes Camp Fire Day Camp Unique?

For more than 60 years, Camp Fire has been bringing the magic of overnight camp to your neighborhood!

Our Day Camps

Small Group Philosophy

Camp Fire campers are assigned to a small group of youth their own grade or age for the entire week of camp. Our groups are small, with 6-12 kids assigned to one adult staff or and 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!

Outdoor Education

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, songs, and special events for the week.  Many of our Day Camps also have special Camp Fire traditions including camp spirits and mascots!
