Program Details:


LOCATION: Amity Creek Elementary

To be clear, Camp Fire does NOT provide transportation to Amity Creek and it is the responsibility of the family to get their child to Amity Creek.

Here are some options we've seen families use:

Option 1: Family coordinates dropping off youth at Amity during afterschool hours. Once you arrive at the back entrance to Amity, simply call the phone number on the Camp Fire sign and a staff member will come outside to sign you in.

Option 2: Contact the Bend/Lapine School District Transportation Department directly and get your child on the bus route that drops off in front of Boys and Girls Club. Then give Camp Fire Afterschool staff the bus route number and confirmation that the route is scheduled to drop off within 30 minutes of school getting out and they will arrange for someone to meet your child at the bus stop and walk them over to Amity.



Theme Days: $16/day

Spark Clubs: $23/day

Wednesdays (Theme Day or Spark Club): $28/day

*Please note: This is the price breakdown per day, but registration is by the season.
