Camp Fire programs are led by trained, caring staff and are participant-centered and include a variety of fun, developmentally appropriate activities such as games, cooking, arts and crafts, drama, music, sports, science, field trips, and lots of active time outdoors.
During COVID-19, we have continued to operate and serve families with our school year programs, altering our services to meet the needs of families in accordance with CDC guidelines and through partnership with the Anchorage School District and other local organizations.

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.
