We utilize best practices in extended-day academic support, mentoring, summer sports and recreation, and experiential learning activities. Providing our high-quality services requires a stellar team of 150 people per year. From working directly with youth outdoors or in school, to fundraising, to office administration, there is a place for you at Camp Fire Columbia. We seek a broadly diverse staff that can authentically teach, mentor, and support the youth we serve.

We are committed to creating a culturally-competent, inclusive, and safe environment for all children, families and staff.

Camp Fire Columbia believes that every child should have the opportunity to find and pursue their spark. It is Camp Fire’s intention to contribute to the achievement of all youth while narrowing the gaps between white students and students of color. Our goal is to address the racial predictability of youth achievement academically, socially, and economically. To achieve this goal, Camp Fire will examine how privilege, oppression, and history affect the practices of our organization, and apply that learning to our work to effect meaningful change.

  • Collect and review information regarding outcomes for youth and employment practices to evaluate our work and adapt our programs and policies.
  • Provide opportunities and support for every youth we serve to achieve their individual goals.
  • Actively seek out expertise and input from families, youth, and the broader community about our programs and progress.

Camp Fire Columbia is not undertaking this work first, or alone. Achieving racial equity will require collective engagement and commitment. With the help of the many great organizations in our community striving for social change, Camp Fire is dedicated to helping all students light their fire within. As a Camp Fire staff member, you’ll be part of a dynamic, engaged team working to help every kid find their spark, lift their voice, and discover who they are.
