Thrive Foundation for Youth
For over a century, Camp Fire has been an innovator in supporting young people as they discover their full potential. Today Camp Fire remains at the forefront of innovation through our national partnership with the Thrive Foundation for Youth (www.thrivefoundation.org).
"We're proud that Camp Fire is the first national organization to implement systemwide the Thrive Foundation for Youth's cutting-edge, research-based techniques," said Cathy Tisdale, president and CEO, Camp Fire. "We share a common belief that every child has inherent strengths that should be uncovered, shaped, and shared with the world. As we help young people grasp a fuller view of their potential, we strengthen Camp Fire's promise to help young people discover who they are and become actively engaged in contributing and connecting to the world around them."
Camp Fire programming will incorporate the Thrive Foundation's research-based lessons—Step-It-Up-2-Thrive—to assist youth in finding their inner motivational passions that catalyze personal growth.
