Description

Camp Fire is a youth development organization committed to building upon over 100 years of rich history and experience in responding to the changing needs of youth. We believe that through informal education programs "kids can be kids," have fun, learn to set goals, and meet challenges.

Mission Statement

Young people want to shape the world. Camp Fire provides the opportunity to find their spark, lift their voice, and discover who they are.  In Camp Fire, it begins now. 

Programs

Funding from Give Local Solano will provide camperships for children from Solano County to attend Camp Gold Hollow in July 2019.  Every $500 raised will have the potential to make a positive change in one child's life.

Additional funds raised will allow Camp Fire Golden Empire to expand club programs in Fairfield and Suisun City by underwriting the materials for club programs that families are not able to afford.

Accomplishments

Camp Fire Golden Empire implemented a new middle school InterACTION program in Vallejo City Unified School District.  This program served youth in two middle schools, focusing on developing strong communication skills with peer groups and adults as well as learning healthy ways to resolve conflict.

Traditional club programs are offered by Camp Fire Golden Empire and are what many people remember fondly.  Club pairs a  trained volunteer leader with a group of youth who work through a Camp Fire curriculum before or after school.  Clubs typically go on field trips, undertake service projects, and do other activities to earn badges and learn life skills.

"Camperships" allowed youth from Solano County to attend Camp Gold Hollow, a week-long resident camp located near Nevada City, California on beautiful Lake Vera.  Children gain outdoor experiences and make lifelong memories and friendships.

Funding Goals

$5,000 will allow us to send 10 Solano County children to Camp Gold Hollow.

$1,500 will provide funds for three new Camp Fire clubs.
