Camp Fire Middle School  Camp Fire’s Middle School program prepares more than 350 youth annually to achieve success in high school and beyond. Developed in 2011 with the support of the U.S. Department of Education, the program is provided in 5 schools in PPS and in partnership with the “I Have a Dream” Foundation in 2 schools in the Reynolds district.

Growth Mindset and Sparks

middle school Students are provided with academic support and encouraged to find their “sparks,” or passions, that will guide their growth – ranging from creative writing to working with technology. Camp Fire gives students the skills to set personal and academic goals for their future, including finding “spark champions” to achieve their goals.

Our “growth mindset” curriculum encourages students to try new things and remain resilient in the face of obstacles. Activities provided include in-class support, monthly field trips to local businesses and colleges, and regular service-learning projects. Students who participate in Camp Fire demonstrate growth in confidence, leadership, caring for their community, and academic achievement.
