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.

Adapt to a variety of environments
Interact with others in a positive manner
Learn to focus which can help in their academics
Demonstrate that hard work and dedication create results
Reap health benefits of outdoor physical activity
