Mission Statement

Our mission is to build lasting, equitable, and caring relationships with nature, others, and ourselves.


Camp Fire Columbia has been part of the Oregon community since its founding in 1910 and remains a leader among the national Camp Fire network for inclusivity and belonging. We believe in putting relationships first and prioritize responsive program development in partnership with youth, families, and community.

As the largest Camp Fire organization in the United States, we annually serve 4,000 young people ages 5-18 through our Before & After School, Camp Namanu, and Teen Programs. Our area of impact has grown over the years, and we are honored to be in 27 schools in the districts of David Douglas, McMinnville, Portland Public Schools, Reynolds, and West Linn-Wilsonville. We prioritize schools that are either under-resourced and/or have a large population of BIPOC students as part of our commitment to equity.

Through our top-notch staff, amazing volunteers, and superb supporters, we share power with youth, honor and protect the natural world, and strengthen student achievement. Our programs are based in best practices that support youth in goal setting and feeling confident in their ability to reach those goals. We believe that every young person should have the opportunity to find and nurture their spark.
