Environmental and Camp Programs
"Look deep into nature and you will understand everything."
— Albert Einstein
Appreciation of nature and environmental stewardship have been core to Camp Fire's foundation since our founding in 1910.
Camp Fire provides opportunities for participants to be outside to learn, explore, and grow together while developing a lifelong appreciation of and respect for the outdoor environment. We believe in the power of nature to awaken the senses and the desire to learn.
Camp Fire's environmental and camp programs connect young people with nature. Examples of outdoor programs: resident camp, day camp, environmental education, and short-term outdoor programs which include day trips.
Through Camp Fire's outdoor programs, youth from different backgrounds develop important skills, such as socialization, self-reliance, problem solving, and an appreciation of and commitment to the natural environment. Participants make their own decisions, have fun, and seek adventures!
