Light the Fire Within


Camp Fire Samish

Camp Fire Samish has served the community since 1910.  Camp Fire’s programs provide nurturing and constructive environments for young people to discover their sparks—unique skills, passions, and interests through Club programs, enrichment classes, community service, and camp experiences.

Camp Fire Samish’s Mission Statement

We inspire and empower all youth

to discover their spark, connect with others,

develop leadership skills, build character, 

and thrive in the natural world.

Inclusion Statement

Camp Fire works to realize the dignity and worth of each individual and to eliminate human barriers based on all assumptions that prejudice individuals. Designed and implemented to reduce sexual, racial, religious, and cultural stereotypes and to foster positive intercultural relationships, in Camp Fire, everyone is welcome.

What is Study & Play Studio? It is a nurturing place where Kindergartners – Third Graders can complete their remote schooling while participating in socially distanced games, crafts, and activities. Youth will need to bring their virtual school materials plus snacks and lunch.

We will be offering Study & Play Studio on Monday – Thursday from 8am – 4pm. To maintain social distancing requirements, only ten spots are available each day. You may sign up for one day or for a week. The cost is $55 a day. 

Profits from this fundraiser will help Camp Kirby continue to serve youth for many generations to come. We are committed to coming back even stronger in 2021, and are looking forward to welcoming you all to Camp once again!
