What Youth Do in Afterschool Programs

For many schools, a daily program is structured like this:

First 60 min

Homework Mentoring and Tutoring

Second 60 min

Conflict Resolution, Cyberbullying, Digital Literacy, and Community Action Programs

Outdoor and Environmental Education, and Health and Wellness Programs

Continued Mentoring and Tutoring

Third 30-45 min

Youth are encouraged to manage their time in a way that aligns with their passions and unique talents. And, our trained adult staff gathers youth input to tailor curricula to meet the needs and nurture the sparks of the youth in the program.

Camp Fire Wise Kids®

Camp Fire’s Wise Kids® and Wise Kids Outdoors® health and wellness programs uses the simple theory of “energy in = energy out” to teach children about eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle.
