Light the Fire Within


Camp Fire Samish has served the community since 1912.  Camp Fire’s all-inclusive programs provide nurturing, constructive and fun environments for young people to discover their sparks—unique skills, passions, and interests through Club programs, enrichment classes, community service, and camp experiences.


We inspire and enable youth of all backgrounds and abilities to discover their spark, value the natural world, and become tomorrow’s leaders, today.

The Camp Fire Promise

Young people want to shape the world. Camp Fire provides the opportunity to find their spark, lift their voice, and discover who they are. In Camp Fire, it begins now.
