Club programs are age-specific and connect youth with caring, trained adults in a small group atmosphere. Clubs meet regularly throughout the year, and youth often remain involved for many years. Club participants choose from a variety of fun and educational activities and projects. Family members are encouraged to participate and support their youth involved in our clubs. Family members become actively engaged and often tell us how much they enjoy connecting with families they would never otherwise meet. The club registration fee is $20, which also includes a Camp Fire t-shirt.
