What is a Youth Membership (Club)?

Camp Fire Classic Club programs serve youth ages 3 through 18. They meet weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly throughout the year in both in and outdoor “classrooms.” Adult leaders and youth create a wide variety of exciting and educational activities, projects, experiences, and events. In fact, the activities are limited only by the members’ imaginations!

 Who is a Club for?

There are Five Levels of Camp Fire Clubs broken up by ages.  Clubs are generally organized by age or grade, but levels may be combined depending on the circumstances of the Club. 

Why choose a Camp Fire Club?

Clubs are where children and teens discover who they are. Camp Fire provides a nurturing, constructive, and fun environment for young people to discover their sparks—unique skills, passions, and interests—and adopt a growth mindset. They chart their own course to healthy habits, community leadership, and connection to nature in collaboration with trained, caring adults. And, in turn, Camp Fire youth give back by sharing those skills in their communities.
