We truly value the trust and relationships that have been built through our prevention programs. Our staff works annually to revise and update our evidence-based curricula so we can provide the most current and beneficial information to children from preschool through 12th grade. We are proud to announce that we have infused the “Thrive Theory of Change” into our educational programs and throughout our organization. This methodology is scientific and research based and is supported by Stanford and Tufts Universities. The ultimate goal of the “Thrive Theory of Change” is to psychologically enable children to discover their individual “sparks” or passions through their self-concept and move forward on the trajectories of positive development toward their full potential and thrive.

Every Camp Fire program employs our framework for thriving: a research-based, measurable approach to youth development.

Where children and teens discover who they are.

Camp Fire provides a nurturing, constructive and fun environment for young people to discover their sparks—unique skills, passions, and interests—and adopt a growth mindset. They chart their own course to good decision making, healthy habits, and community leadership in collaboration with trained, caring adults. And, in turn, Camp Fire youth give back by sharing those skills in their communities.

At Camp Fire, it’s truly a way of life.
