Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
We have a small but extremely dedicated full-time staff of 13, a seasonal staff size of 100 and more than 1,000 volunteers that deliver our programs.
We believe that all kids, regardless of their financial situation, deserve to experience the magic of Camp Fire. We have a long history of providing financial assistance to campers in need and also offer tiered pricing for many of our programs. Financial aid is limited, however so please be sure and apply early. We are grateful to our generous donors who make this possible!
Camp Fire Central Puget Sound is one of 60 Camp Fire Councils nationwide. Our National Headquarters is located in Kansas City, MO and supports us with program resources and research. However, our council functions as an autonomous entity governed by our own separate board of directors.
