Our traditional Camp Fire Club programs meet weekly for six-week sessions and thread together over the year to guide youth Pre K- 6th grade through Camp Fire's age-specific, growth mindset-based Thrive{ology} curriculum, exploring what are called "Trails" - themes that build life skills, understanding and a child's sense of self-worth. Clubs are grouped by age/grade level and explore the Trail theme with age-appropriate activities.
