What Makes Camp Fire Different

Child & Youth Development Programs for 
Pensacola, Milton & Century, FL

At Camp Fire, we light the fire within!
Camp Fire helps youth dig deep inside and discover their "sparks," their personally defined nuggets of potential.

Helping a young person become who they want to be takes time and encouragement. It takes paying attention to what sparks a passion. At Camp Fire, that's what we do. We listen, we encourage, and we provide the opportunity to uncover each young person's unique interests. Our summer camp will help youth become the exceptional people they are destined to be, buoyant with potential to do anything they dream of doing.
