Camp Fire’s fundraisers help secure funds to provide our free programs to kids. Volunteers are crucial to making these nights a success, whether they serve as greeters, bartenders, or all-around helping hands. Our next event will be the  7th annual Camp Fire Talent Show, date TBD.

Namanu Service Weekends
Volunteers gather several times throughout the off-season to make sure Namanu is beautiful for weddings, retreats, and the upcoming summer. Activities include chopping wood, clearing trails, removing ivy, and other upkeep. Come stay in one of our rustic cabins for a weekend or just for a day of fun.

Corporate Day of Service
Twice a year Camp Fire Columbia hosts a Corporate Day of Service out at Camp Namanu. Bring a group of Volunteers from work to enjoy a day at Camp helping to stain cabins, clear trails, chop wood and strip fabric. Then, in the afternoon, enjoy some great Camp-activities such as Archery, Hiking, Crafts and climbing our Rock Wall.

Mill Park and Menlo Park Food Pantry
Mill Park and Menlo Park Elementary School are now  Oregon Food Bank School Food Pantry sites, and in need of volunteers! Open hours are between 3:00 – 4:30 at Mill Park and 2pm-4pm at Menlo Park, every Friday.

Career Sparks
At our Middle and High School Programs, we are working with students to help identify their ‘sparks’. Students enjoy hearing from people in our community about the exciting careers they have! If you would like to share your story about your path to your exciting career, our students would love to talk to you about your ‘spark’.

We look forward to working with you!
