WHY CAMP FIRE? // There is so much competition for our children’s time during the summer — sports, summer school, well-deserved vacations. But camp is truly a gift. Camp Fire was created to guide young people on a journey of self-discovery. At Camp Fire camps, youth have the opportunity to dig deep inside and discover their sparks, their personally defined ideas of potential. Our society needs a generation of future leaders who understand the dynamics of community living, appreciate inclusion, and are one with nature. At Camp Fire, we’re proud of the role we play in guiding young lives to appreciate themselves and the world they live in.
LOCATION // Wildwood Park is a City of Puyallup maintained facility with 55 areas of ready to explore forest seemingly hidden in town. Camp Fire and the City of Puyallup have partnered for over 20 years making Wildwood Day Camp a long standing tradition.
ACTIVITIES // Unplug, connect, and explore! Those are the words we live by in our daily activities. Sessions ranging from crafts and drama to cookouts and shelter building keep our mornings busy. There are plenty of camper led times exploring trails, the stream, small hikes and more. We spend our afternoons doing a variety team challenges: cooperative, competitive, creative, and innovative.
MEALS // Please send a sack lunch each day to camp with your camper along with a filled, reusable water bottle. Even on cookout days we ask that a lunch is sent.
THURSDAY FAMILY NIGHT // Grab a camp chair and join us Thursday evening at the park for Council Fire. We'll hand out the weekly awards, see skits from all groups, sing a few songs, and finish with yummy s'mores!
STAFF // Our program is run primarily by community volunteers: junior high students, high school students, college students, parents, and professionals. This includes counselors, activity specialist, leadership, and first aiders. Our camper to counselor ration is 4:1. All volunteers are fully trained to Camp Fire standards and are subject to state background checks.
VOLUNTEERS // There is a need for many different skill sets at day camp! Adults can volunteer at any of our day camp sites as counselors and activity specialists. Week long adult volunteers receive a $25 discount on day camp registration for their own children. Campers of week-long adult volunteers will automatically gain entrance into the camp of their choice. All volunteers are required to attend pre-camp training and are subject to state background checks.
