Camp Fire Central Oregon | Light the Fire Within

No-School Day Camps

No school? No problem!

No School Day camps turn that “day off” into a day of creativity and fun! From kindergarten through 5th grade, we have you covered on those days Bend/LaPine Schools are out.

Our professional staff fill every No School Day Camp with games and activities to help campers make new friends and explore plenty of opportunities. We separate youth into age-appropriate groups so that each kid is challenged at their individual level.

To keep youth engaged, every No School Day Camp has a fun theme. Themes will be announced in fall after our staff have recovered from summer camp!

Dates and Themes

Themes for the 2023/24 school year are to be announced soon, except as noted.

Registration is for individual days, as many or as few as you need.

Don't wait to register! High-quality youth programs are in high demand and Camp Fire programs are kept small to ensure a great adult:youth ratio and create the best learning experience possible. That means space is limited and many sessions sell out quickly. If the program is sold out, please add yourself to the waitlist.

Young people want to shape the world.

Camp Fire provides the opportunity to find their spark, lift their voice, and discover who they are.
