Make a difference, see the difference…as a Camp Fire Leader! In Camp Fire Clubs, boys and girls have fun, but they are also learning valuable lessons that will stay with them for a lifetime.
Leaders organize participant-led activities for boys and girls to help them explore and develop their natural abilities. Camp Fire encourages kids to make healthy choices, build relationships, find their leadership abilities, learn community responsibility and develop life-long interests.
Age appropriate materials and training are provided to guide you. You will also meet other leaders to share ideas and activities to make your leadership experience successful and fun. As a club leader, you decide your group’s age, gender mix and number of members. Clubs can meet every week, every other week, or even monthly either during the school year or all year. You decide! The time commitment depends on the number of times you meet per month and what types of activities you chose. Camp Fire Clubs aren't limited to one leder...we also encourage co-leading with other adults!
While all clubs share the same core values, every Club has flexibility to design their own activities. Average sized Clubs are between six to eight kids. Both youth and adults set the direction of activities and projects. All clubs have the opportunity to earn money for outings through our annual Candy Sale fundraiser.
Camp Fire kids are rewarded with emblems and/or beads for reaching their goals. As an important part of Camp Fire programs, it helps to build self-esteem and pride. The Camp Fire curriculum helps Leaders guide our youth to discover their spark and Light the fire within.
