Wayfinder Benefits

Twice a Month Virtual Meetings

Every other Thursday, starting October 21st, over the course of the school year, Camp Fire staff will lead a virtual meeting on the Zoom platform. The meeting time will allow teens to build community by connecting with their peers in a structured and safe environment. The Project Wayfinder Curriculum is designed to foster meaningful connections and guide the participants to navigate life with purpose. The Wayfinder Curriculum was developed at Stanford d. School’s K-12 Lab!

Why Belonging Matters

Belonging is the foundation of developing purpose. When teens feel purposeful, it has been shown to facilitate identity formation, increase positive attitudes towards diversity, reduce antisocial behavior and bullying, decrease engagement in risky behaviors, and increase academic engagement. Furthermore, interventions to promote purposeful behavior have been found to lead to significant increases in grade point averages.

Who Can Participate?

All teens entering 6th-8th grade in the fall of 2020 are eligible to register, regardless of past or current participation in any Camp Fire or Camp Sealth Teen Leadership program. Teens who have never participated in a Camp Fire program are especially welcome to join us!

Financial Aid & Discounts

As with all Camp Fire programs, financial aid is available. We understand that this is a challenging time for families and do not want your participation to be limited by a financial circumstance. Please contact Alex at to request financial aid for this program.
