Youth want to shape the world, especially teens! Teen service and leadership are vital to building healthy communities and a better world. To develop this important resource, Camp Fire guides teens through impactful community service and leadership experiences.
Camp Fire’s Teen Service and Leadership Programs provide a variety of opportunities to help teens develop as effective and engaged citizens now.
Our Teens in Action Program is youth-led and youth-driven, guided by trained adults. Through our service-learning framework, teens learn to identify community needs, decide what issues they want to advocate for, then take action to make a difference in their communities.
Our Youth Leadership Academy ensure youth voice in local and program planning and decision making while performing community service projects.
Our Outdoor Leadership Training teaches leadership skills in an outdoor environment while completing environmental community service projects.
Our Camp Counselor-in-Training Program prepares young people aged 16 and older to serve in leadership roles in Camp Fire camps. These opportunities provide significant personal and early professional development for these young people.
