Crowded classrooms. Slashed budgets. Working, single parents. An endless supply of risk factors available for any kid.

It’s clear: Schools can’t do it by themselves.

Camp Fire Columbia augments the work of local schools by delivering high-quality, outcomes-driven programs to over 3,000 kids each year. We support kids academically, prepare them for college/career readiness, and help them develop an unwavering belief in themselves and a drive to impact their community in a positive way. Want impact? Evaluations show that youth in our programs increase their academic growth at faster rates than their peers. They also demonstrate increased motivation and positive behaviors.

Camp Fire’s vision is that every youth be equipped with the skills, power, and opportunity to shape the community and their place within it.

Want to help us achieve this vision? Here’s how:


Got a mouth? Great! Tell a friend what we’re doing.
Got a laptop? (Apparently so!) Help us go viral.

Our goal is to rally a team of supporters to re-introduce the 21st century Camp Fire to the community. The best part is, you already have everything you need to join our team.
