In 2012, Camp Fire and the Säjai Foundation launched a partnership based upon our shared commitment to affect the health and well-being of children and youth.
Säjai developed a unique and impactful curriculum, called Wise Kids®, that focuses on helping youth form healthy habits that last a lifetime. Targeted primarily to elementary-aged youth, the curriculum aligns with our work at Camp Fire. Wellness and learning about outdoors are critical if we want to have healthy, active children who thrive as adults.
The Wise Kids® curricula teaches the Energy Balance concept (Calories going IN to your body through food and drinks needs to balance Calories going OUT of your body over time to be healthy) through two topic areas:
- Health and wellness
- Connecting youth with nature through environmental education and healthy outdoor activities
