Camp Fire Central Oregon | Light the Fire Within

Support Kids

Imagine a world where every single kid is encouraged to find their passion and is supported by caring adult champions. This is the world we're creating in our out-of-school-time programs. But we need your help to make sure every kid in our community has equal access to these valuable growth experiences. With your generous donation, we can increase scholarships, provide extra supports for a diverse group of youth, and ensure an inclusive environment for all.

What can your gift do to change lives?

“BUT I PAY TO SEND MY KIDS TO YOUR PROGRAM...WHY DO YOU NEED MY DONATION?”

Program fees only cover about 75% of our operating costs in a “normal” year. This year, the added cost we’ve incurred to create a safe and healthy environment for youth during a global pandemic, along with the increased demand for financial assistance, means that program fees have only covered 58%.

You have the power to close the gap. In a year when kids need social-emotional outlets and learning more than ever, the unmet demand for afterschool programming has skyrocketed: Currently, for every child in an afterschool program, 3 are waiting to get in and non profit providers like Camp Fire are struggling to meet the need.

While there is still so much uncertainty about what 2021 will bring, Camp Fire wants to be here for the many families who needourservices, but we can only operate and expand with donor support. Help us bring Hope for 2021 and ensure that young people continue to have a safe space to explore and grow.
