Camp Fire National Headquarter’s 18-month Strategic Plan

Wed. February 3 at 3:30pm CST

We are committed to creating a sustainable organization that best serves today’s and tomorrow’s youth and families, where every young person can be their whole selves, and connect with others and nature in a safe, affirming environment that strives to break down barriers and provide opportunities to thrive.

With these values in mind, Camp Fire spent the better part of 2020 formulating our new 18-month Strategic Plan that focuses on 5 main goals:

  1. Advance diversity, equity, inclusion, and access
  2. Engage in actively antiracist practices
  3. Address and end cultural appropriation
  4. Honor the power of young people with meaningful participation in decision-making
  5. Promote environmental stewardship and action

Our CEO, Greg Zweber, and Chief Strategy Officer, Shawna Rosenzweig, will walk you through each part of the strategic plan and answer any questions.
