Camp Fire has actively engaged youth and teens in building essential skills for life for more than 100 years. We're proud of our heritage of cultivating community building, supporting academic readiness, and embracing diversity. Camp Fire was founded in 1910 to guide young people on their journey to self-discovery. In 2012, Camp Fire became the first national youth development organization in the United States to implement the methodology for thriving developed by the Thrive Foundation for Youth (www.thrivefoundation.org). Currently, Camp Fire is working to implement the Thrive methodology across the entire program! In July of 2012, Camp Fire rebranded. The traditional Camp Fire flame became a more contemporary logo, and the official tagline became "Light the fire within"
