Camp Fire was founded as a national organization in 1910 and started operating in Alaska in 1913. One of the first youth organizations in the state, today we are a leader in youth development and the largest licensed provider of school-age childcare in Alaska.
Camp Fire offers affordable, high-quality programs, professionally trained staff, activities and events that are appealing to youth, and a fun, safe place to experience it all. We serve more than 5,000 youth every year before and after school, during school breaks, all summer long, and across rural Alaska.
To all Camp Fire Alaska Staff—you are our everyday heroes. Youth thrive because of you.
