Camp Fire’s mission is to provide every child with the opportunity to find the best in themselves and others in a safe, fun, learning environment. We understand that quality after-school programming helps children develop social, emotional, physical and academic skills and are key to helping our young people become successful adults. These out-of-school-time programs help working families and keeps kids safe while offering them challenging activities and learning experiences.
Camp Fire operates 29 municipally licensed school-age child-care programs in Anchorage and Eagle River, serving more than 1,300 children each day, in grades K to 6.
Programs are located in the elementary school where the participants are enrolled, creating consistency for the children and easing the burden of transportation for parents. We are open before school from 7:00 am, and until 6:00 pm in Anchorage and 6:30 pm in Eagle River.
We offer program on most scheduled school closure days, including in-service days and winter and spring breaks, and we are usually open in select locations during unplanned closures (emergency or snow days).
Scholarships may be available and this program accepts childcare assistance payments.
