At Camp Fire Minnesota, young people bond through shared experiences, creating a trove of memories and a network of life-long friendships. We disconnect from technology, providing space to build authentic connections with each other and the natural world.

Creating a safe, inclusive, and supportive environment is at the core of our mission. At Camp Fire, we encourage young people to discover their own strength and resilience by building confidence in themselves, their peers, and their mentors. View our Youth Storytelling Contest submissions to hear it from Camp Fire youth!

With your support, we can continue to create meaningful nature experiences for 10,000 youth each year while removing barriers to participation.
