Beginning in 9th grade, teens who participate in Camp Fire’s Group Program or our various Teen Leadership Programs are eligible to begin earning their Wohelo Award, the highest achievement in Camp Fire.
It takes an incredible amount of hard work and years of dedication. Youth are required to complete three major service projects, or Advocacies, that they design and implement under the guidance of an advisor, and must complete four curriculum components focusing on self reflection, community service, environmental stewardship, preparation for the future, and more. Additionally, youth learn about our local and national Camp Fire history.
Participants who complete the requirements for the WoHeLo Award demonstrate leadership, self-confidence, respect for others, organizational skills and a desire and ability to make a difference in the world.
