Maddie has lived in Alaska for about 18 years and started working at Camp Fire in 2013. She has held many positions in the School Age Program and is excited to be working on the Development team now. When Maddie is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and of course her kitty, Elsa. Maddie also enjoys taking care of her many plants, being by the ocean, arranging flowers, listening to Taylor Swift, and taking in all the beautiful views around Alaska.
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.
