Optional Group Dues
Camp Fire Groups may elect to request dues on a per meeting, monthly, or yearly basis to cover the expenses of materials or fees. Groups are also encouraged to participate in the Candy Fundraiser to help earn treasury funds that can be used for group expenses.
You may wish to purchase Recognition Awards & Uniform items for your youth. These items range in price from less than $1 to about $20 for a vest or other apparel item. Additionally, there may be fees associated with certain events, such as weekend retreats to Camp Sealth or admission fees for activities.
Camp Fire believes that all kids, regardless of their financial situation, should be able to participate in our programming. Financial assistance is available for families in need thanks to generous donations from businesses, community organizations and friends of Camp Fire. Families who are awarded financial aid for Group Program will receive support for membership fees as well as emblem or uniform purchases; however, participation in the Candy Fundraiser is required. Apply for financial aid when registering for Group Program.
