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.
…creating time and space for Elders and other adults to participate in activities with youth and staff and teach them about cultural history, subsistence living, and more.
We cannot wait for another summer of the Rural Alaska Program to begin and are enthusiastic to see our changes in action.

Young people want to shape the world.
Camp Fire provides the opportunity to find their spark, lift their voice, and discover who they are.
In Camp Fire, it begins now.
