Camp Fire Central Oregon | Light the Fire Within

Camp Fire Afterschool

Fall 2020 registration now open!

 

Camp Fire Afterschool (CFA) is a flexible and fun option for families looking to balance afterschool care with enrichment opportunities and social-emotional skill development. Filled with time outdoors, fun challenges, STEAM activities, games and songs, CFA supports youth in exploring their sparks, practicing social skills, creating connections, building community, and gaining confidence. 

Spark add-on options allow CFA youth to join a themed course for 2 hours in the afternoon in small age-specific groups. Courses are designed to teach youth about a particular topic or activity that may become a lifelong passion!

CFA runs MONDAYS, TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS and FRIDAYS throughout the 2020-21 school year in 6-week sessions to coincide with the school district's schedule for reevaluating instructional format. 

WEDNESDAYS will be Nature Days, an all-day, No School Day Camp style program with daily nature-based themes.

This year in particular, we will really be leaning into the aspects of CFA that get kids outside, away from screens, and socializing. For information on how we are working to reduce risks of COVID-19 exposure in our programs, please refer to our COVID-19 Handbook.
