School-Year Programs

Helping Youth Thrive In and Out of School

Camp Fire School-Year programs provide youth with so much more than simply a place to go before and after school while parents work. When Camp Fire partners with your school, students have the opportunity to work with trained, caring adults who can help them with their school work, teach them about health and wellness, keep them active, engage them in community service projects, or provide mentoring regarding challenges youth face today. Our programs are uniquely focused to help youth thrive.

After School Programs

Afterschool Programs

We may call them “afterschool” programs, but in most cases, Camp Fire partners with communities and schools to deliver both before- and afterschool programs. Our programs are uniquely structured to support a youth’s education and help them become leaders in their daily lives.

School Time Programs

School-Day Programs

With select schools, Camp Fire delivers programs during the school day. Our trained staff works directly with teachers to integrate our programs into their lesson plan and complement the day’s activities.

Camp Fire Club Programs

Some Camp Fire councils do offer a traditional club program. These programs pair a trained, volunteer leader with a group of youth who work on Camp Fire curricula and programs during the out-of-school-time hours. In addition, Camp Fire Clubs typically go on field trips, undertake service projects and do a variety of activities. Here’s a handy chart about Discovery recognition, Starflight recognition, and Adventure recognition!
