Camp Fire Alaska | Light the Fire Within

Inclusion at school-based programs

At Camp Fire Alaska, inclusion is one of our core values. We believe that each young person should have the opportunity to engage in the outdoors and at school freely and safely. To do that, it’s our responsibility to create a space where they can be their full authentic selves and be accepted for who they are.

You can see this commitment in action in a variety of ways when you engage in Camp Fire programs.

Discover more about what that looks like during our Before and After School program below – and view our main inclusion page.

The Camp Fire Alaska main office operates on the ancestral land of the Dena’ina people. Camp Fire Alaska runs programing on the lands of the Athabascan, Yup’ik, Chup’ik, Sougpiaq, and Inupiaq peoples. We value and thank them for their current and historic commitment to and protection of this land. We pledge to assist, in partnership, in the environmental stewardship of these lands. We strive to learn more about the history of the Native peoples of Alaska and the historic trauma they have suffered. We commit to being an active ally through activities, actions, and organizational decisions and practices. We understand that this is a dynamic process through which our Land Acknowledgement practices, and statement will evolve as we receive feedback from tribal partners and acquire a deeper understanding of and from the Native peoples of Alaska.
