Outdoor Time

We go outside every day, weather permitting (we follow ASD weather policies).


Our activities are age-appropriate and include outdoor and gym time every day, hands-on learning such as STEM activities, arts and crafts, cooking, as well as quiet choices such as reading and board games. During Interest Centers, kids can choose high or low energy group or independent activities such as table games, reading, homework, gym time or arts and crafts.


Camp Fire helps children gain respect for their environment by expecting them to participate in clean-up activities.

Family Events

Camp Fire isn’t just for kids! We regularly host events for the entire family so you can see for yourself all the fun things we are learning. Ask your Site Director about the next Family Event.

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.
