We serve Hancock, Seneca and Wood Counties with our In-School Programs, Clubs, Activities and Camp. Camp Fire NWO relies on local funding from the United Way, corporate and individual giving, along with state and national grants. The number of children we are able to serve directly correlates to our funding. We continuously strive to fund-raise and seek funding sources in order to maintain and expand our reach in the communities we serve. We diligently work to be good stewards to our resources- including our future community leaders.
