English-Spanish Translation for Promotional Materials

Do you speak Spanish? We need your help to make our programs become more inclusive!

We are looking for someone to help us expand our reach and connect a wider audience to our services by translating our materials from English into Spanish.  While programs are all run in English, we know that in many families, the decision makers speak only Spanish. We want to provide opportunities to the youth in these families by offering information about our programs in both Spanish and English.

Poster & Flyer Distribution

Spend an hour or two hanging posters at various locations around Bend. This is a very flexible volunteer opportunity, and since we usually have posters to distribute every month or so, you can volunteer one time or on an ongoing basis.

Use your preferred mode of transportation - car, bike, or on foot. Choose a neighborhood in which you'd like to distribute posters or pick a select few locations that you already frequent. Or, we can tell you exactly where to go!

This is a great way to simultaneously explore our town, get fresh air, and provide a helping hand.

Program Facilitation

Do you remember being in camp as a child? The smell of glue when creating crafts, holding hands while playing games, or singing together the same old songs! Help create these memories for our kids here in Bend.

Bring your unique expertise and we will find a way to share your spark within the program!

During the school year, we offer programs at individual schools based on the volunteer participation. If you have a school in mind that you would like to bring Camp Fire into, please contact us and share your ideas.
