Camp Fire Central Oregon | Light the Fire Within

Tech Programs

Camp Fire offers a variety of opportunities for youth to increase their tech fluency while having fun at the same time. For many youth, robotics and coding are naturally engaging first steps to bridge the gap from being a tech consumer to developing the skills to understand and participate in how the technology actually works.

While we use robotics and coding as forums to build tangible skills in technology, we also focus on social emotional skills to build confidence, practice collaboration and teamwork, and develop critical thinking and creativity in problem solving.
