Get Involved


There’s value to catching kids upstream.

Right now, 1 in 3 students in Oregon drops out. However, students who spend one to four hours a week in afterschool activities are 60% less likely to drop out of school than peers who do not. [1] High quality afterschool programs like Camp Fire are a can’t miss investment: Each dollar invested in an at-risk child in an afterschool program brings a return of $8.92 to $12.90 through reduced costs in crime, incarceration, and welfare, among others.[2]

Join our list of corporate partners by supporting a Camp Fire event or directly supporting our programs and youth. Below are some of the opportunities to invest in Camp Fire kids:

$5000 - Adopt thirty kids in one of our Title One School Based Programs for a month of robust, academic and enrichment driven programming.

$2500 – Support five underserved youth in attending Camp Namanu, our 552 acre camp in the foothills of Mt. Hood. For many, this will be their first overnight experience in the outdoors and away from the “wired world.”

$1000 – Provide funding for one teen to participate in our Xploregon summer road-trip, a two week trip across the state aimed at stabilizing and supporting teens who aren’t on track to graduate.

Other opportunities to get involved include volunteering, in-kind, and employee giving programs.
