More than a century of empowering youth

Camp Fire Minnesota is located on the lands of the Dakota and Ojibwe people.

Founded in 1910, Camp Fire is the first nonsectarian, interracial organization for girls in the United States. In 1912 the first Minnesota Camp Fire groups were organized. In 1924, Camp Fire Girls in Minnesota began operating its first summer camp program in Excelsior. Founded as an organization serving girls, today, we are inclusive and open to all young people.

With a history spanning more than 100 years, we are learning a lot as we dig into our organizational history. Later in 2024, we will be adding to this page to reflect our learnings and better share our history.
