EVENT CANCELED:

The safety and health of our participants and their families is our top priority. We are following all recommendations from the King County Health Department and the CDC regarding the Coronavirus. Currently, Governor Inslee has closed all schools in King County until April 27th, with the Spring Break Road Trip scheduled for April 13th-17th. With this information in mind and the wide range of populations we serve, we will be cancelling the Spring Break Road Trip. While we were looking forward to having you on this trip, this is the best decision for the safety of you, your families, and our staff members.

Camp Fire’s Summer and Day Camps are scheduled to run as normal at this time. Camp Fire will continue to take our lead from the King County Health Department and CDC.

You have two options for how to refund your fees.  We can apply your fees to another program or we can issue a full refund at this time.

If you have additional questions or concern about refunds, please email or call Ali Fuller at 206-826-8980 or Alex Kirschner at 206-826-8919.

Thank you for your understanding.

Camp Fire is excited to offer the Spring Break Service Trip the week of April 13-17, following the Seattle Public School district among others. The trip will feature 5 service projects across the region from a variety of cause areas, such as environmental stewardship, youth or senior citizen organizations, animal advocacy, food resources, and more.

Trip Itinerary & Service Projects

  • Tacoma Nature Center – April 13th

Metro Parks Tacoma manages over 2,696 acres of parks and green space, historic landmarks, community centers, beautiful gardens and special attractions that give us all a chance to get out and play more.

We will “chip in” by investing  time and talents to help  improve parks and green spaces, protect neighborhood buildings and promote a healthy environment while helping to build a stronger community.

  • Bremerton Foodline – April 14th

The Bremerton Foodline’s mission is to “…provide food assistance and other services to reduce hunger and improve self-sufficiency for those within our community.” There are many different tasks that we could be working on to help Bremerton Foodline operate. Participants could be volunteering from greeting clients and helping with food baskets, to loading trucks and stocking food in the warehouse.

  • Matt Albright Native Plant Center (Olympic National Park) – April 15th

Olympic National Park seeks plant-loving individuals to assist in restoring plant communities around the park. Volunteers will assist National Park Service staff and partners with various aspects of the project, including native plant propagation and care, and replanting of disturbed areas. Volunteer opportunities take place at the Matt Albright Native Plant Center and in various areas around Olympic National Park.

  • Fishline – April 16th

Fishline operates a thrift store, food bank, and garden to table program. Our group will be helping in one of these areas! Their thrift store is operated entirely by volunteers, so all profits are used to provide services to Fishline clients. Volunteers can sort through donations, price and stage incoming merchandise or cashier.

  • Vashon Community Care – April 17th

We will be wrapping up our trip with our final stop at Vashon Community Care, an assisted living facility for seniors. Vashon Community Care offers a variety of services to help maintain the livelihood of their residents that teen volunteers will have the opportunity to engage in.

We will be interacting with the seniors through activities that may include crafts, providing companionship through storytelling and sharing, sitting down for some movie time, or outdoor activities!

Activities, Meals, & Accommodations

All activities, food, and sleeping accommodations are included. Camp Fire can accommodate most special diets such as gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, or allergies. Contact us prior to registering if you have questions or concerns. Accommodations will be inside heated yurts at Washington State Parks, but teens should bring their sleeping bags!
