This month, we launched a new community conversation series: Around the Camp Fire. These conversations delve into topics around how to support, encourage, and lift up young people in our community to grow their potential and thrive now. Free and open to anyone who cares about our youth, Around the Camp Fire will be facilitated by Camp Fire Central Oregon staff, youth, and expert guest speakers.

November's conversation was about supporting kids through an untraditional COVID-19 holiday season:

There's no denying it: Thanksgiving will look different this year. Join us for an interactive discussion, emphasizing easy, actionable, low-stress ways to support your kids through a COVID-19 holiday season. Learn how to promote gratitude at home and keep kids engaged with fun, simple activities for the whole family.
