Camp Fire USA Alaska Councils programs build caring, confident youth and future leaders through school-based child care, community centers in low- income neighborhoods, resident and day camps and a rural Alaska program that brings camp counselors to remote villages for summer programs. All programs provide a safe, nurturing and enriching environment in which youth grow and learn.
Camp Fire serves over 5,000 youth each year, with over 1,200 participants in our School Age Child Care program each day. Many youth also spend their summers with us through day camps, residential camps and our Rural Alaska Program. Not only do youth benefit from the agency's programs, but families are supported through year-round programming and the addition of trained, caring adult mentors in the lives of their children.
Every child will have an opportunity to discover the best in themselves and others in a fun and safe learning environment.
We build caring, confident youth and future leaders.
