“I’ve gone to camp my whole life. Some of the most important relationships that I’ve ever had have been through Camp Fire. They were always there for me. They were part of my support system and they still are a part of my support system. I’m very excited now that I work full time with Camp Fie with the before and after school programs.”



“One of the really, really cool things about having all the connections with kids here is I know when some of our kids are having a bad day. I know when some of our kids are having a really great day. And know what works for each kid.”


“My hope for the future of Camp Fire is that we continue to be focused on the kids. When I’m 70 you can catch me at Camp Namanu during alumni weekend telling all my great stories about camp and about Namanu and about Camp Fire.”
