Meet Emma Bell
Emma Bell is a remarkable young lady and camp counselor who joined Campfire Central Oregon during her high school years here in Bend Oregon. She is remarkable in that she earned her Wohelo award so quickly thru hard work and perseverance and a truly giving spirit.
“Wohelo” stands for Work, Health, and Love—values that have been central to Camp Fire since our founding in 1910. The Wohelo Award is the highest achievement for youth in Camp Fire. This prestigious award, open to teens in grades 9 through 12, offers opportunities for personal development, leadership, and advocacy on important issues.
The award is earned by completing an intensive and highly individualized project. Teens design their projects based on their interests, values, and goals. Completing the requirements to earn the Wohelo Award takes hard work, dedication, motivation, creativity, determination, and discipline. The award demonstrates perseverance, the ability to set and achieve meaningful goals, a strong work ethic, commitment to community service, and leadership.
Wohelo Award recipients tell us it is the most rewarding experience Camp Fire youth will ever have. And, it is an important addition to a job application, college application and interview, and as part of other community activities he or she is interested in.
Emma is currently a student at COCC and an active camp counselor as well as a lifeguard at one of the local pools. To know Emma is to know that she is one of those rare and beautiful beings inside and out. She gives so much to her family and the kids at Campfire Central Oregon. Emma’s leaders tell us she has an amazing sense of humor, loves working with all the kids and has a very bright future in front of her.
