Camp Fire Alaska is a not-for-profit youth development agency serving children throughout Alaska. The council has provided programs for young people in Alaska since 1916. Our council is chartered by National Camp Fire USA and exists to support working families and serve youth throughout the state of Alaska. Our programs are coed and include School Age Child Care, Community Centers, and Outdoor programs. The Council programs provide opportunities for over 5,000 youth in Alaska during a given year. All Camp Fire programs are based upon sound youth development principles. The Camp Fire Alaska is honored to be able to serve families and youth throughout the state. Our programs are grounded in an excellent foundation of youth development that recognized the needs of the whole child: physical, emotional, spiritual, and cognitive.
We value the uniqueness of the individual, while our programs work with all children to teach skills in how to live well together. For more information on our programs, please see our Camp Fire webpage at http://www.campfireak.org/program/.
