What do we do in the After School Program?

Our Camp Fire After School programs are structured in collaboration with the school to ensure that Camp Fire programs complement the participants’ education. Youth will be encouraged to spend their time in ways that align with their passions and unique talents. Our staff will gather youth input to tailor curricula to meet the needs and nurture the Sparks of the youth in the program. Our programs are centered around Camp Fire’s Thrive{ology} concepts.

We will use many Camp Fire curricula in our programs, including the following:

Wise Kids

Camp Fire’s Wise Kids is a health and wellness curriculum program that is based on the simple theory of “energy in = energy out” to teach children about eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle in a fun interactive way.

Wise Kids Outdoors

Similar to Wise Kids, Wise Kids Outdoors combines the theory of “energy in = energy out” with outdoor education.

Conflict Resolution

Camp Fire’s Conflict Resolution program teaches youth lifelong skills around reducing, avoiding, and communicating in conflict situations. Other focus areas include digital literacy, safety and individual rights.

Building Blocks

Camp Fire’s Building Blocks is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) enrichment program for youth grades K-8. The program uses Samsung tablet technology to explore and create new innovations for a better tomorrow.
