Camp Fire Summer Programs for youth in grades K-12

At Camp Fire Columbia we build confident, independent leaders who are able to engage and thrive in their world.


2017 Registration is Now Open!

Our summer programs keep kids exploring and learning during the out-of-school months. These programs all work to battle the “summer learning slide” (the loss of learning and skills during idle summer months) while immersing youth in unique hands-on adventures that turn the world into their classroom.

Camp Fire lights a spark in thousands of youth every year, keeping them learning all summer long! Namanu Ranch and Resident Camp are designed for kids aged 7-17. Our Day Camp programs start as young as age 5. 

The units in each area of our summer programs are organized by the grade each camper will be going into in the fall of 2017. You can read more information about each unit and program below. When you click the ‘register now’ button, you will be sent to our registration site. Note: If you attended Camp Fire Summer programming in Summer 2016 or the Before and After School 2016-17 program you already have an account. If you have not, you will have to create a new account for head of household, and for each camper you are registering. Click here to learn more about what you’ll need in order to register.

Online registration is restricted 7 calendar days prior to the session or program start date. To register within 7 days prior to session start date, you must call the Registrars at 971-340-1608 or 971-341-1607.
