Summer Day Camp enrollment is open NOW
Starting in June we are offering Summer Day Camp in three Portland Public School locations and one in West Linn! Our trained staff will facilitate the fun while adapting to all COVID-19 health and safety requirements and Camp Fire best practice. Summer Day Camp will provide youth, ages 5 through 12, opportunities to explore existing passions, learn through play, and meet new friends.
Each week has its own unique theme and will offer a variety of activities including water play, virtual field trips, cooking projects, STEAM challenges, and wheels day!
Attention returning families: Key registration fields that we ask you to update in the personal your Family Portal are missing or displaying erroneously. We chose to prioritize opening enrollment rather than delay while these issues are fixed by ProCare. We will contact enrolled families to update information once it’s resolved. We are advocating to have the fields that are displaying erroneously removed so you can skip them completely:
- Gender for Children: This field only offers Male/Female responses. This does not align with Camp Fire Columbia’s values. As an alternative, we have created a second, more appropriate gender field that offers more options for your child. We encourage you to skip the restrictive gender field and only answer the more inclusive one.
- Address and Phone for Children: The address and phone fields under the children’s profiles do not need to be completed because that information is already gathered in the adult’s profiles.
- Emergency Contacts & Authorized Pick-Ups Address and Work: We only need a phone number and email for emergency contacts and authorized pick-ups. You can skip the address and employer fields.
We have a fun filled summer planned, we hope you can join us!
At Camp Fire Columbia, we help build confident, independent leaders who are able to engage and thrive in their world.
Committed to providing an environment that is safe, fun, and nurtures a sense of belonging for each and every youth, Camp Fire is ready for summer!
Camp Fire’s Summer Day Camp day-to-day activities provide youth, ages 5-12, with hands-on learning while keeping all the fun and silliness you’d expect from a traditional summer camp. Camp Fire kids connect with their communities through local field trips and presentations from special guests.
Day Camp Rates, Session Themes, and Schedules all vary by location.
Each week has its own unique theme and will include a variety of activities including field trips, special guests, arts and crafts, STEAM challenges and day trips to Camp Namanu.
