Wohelo 2013

“Wohelo” stands for Work, Health, and Love – values that are central to Camp Fire. The Wohelo Award is the highest achievement for youth in Camp Fire.

This prestigious award, for youth 15 to 20 years old, offers opportunities for personal development, leadership, and advocacy on important issues. The award is earned by completing an intensive and highly individualized set of projects designed to take approximately 4 years to complete. Teens design their own projects based on their interests, values, and goals. Completing the requirements to earn the Wohelo Award takes hard work, dedication, motivation, creativity, determination, and discipline.

Camp Fire Samish is proud to announce that four young adults were awarded Wohelo medallions during a ceremony held at Camp Kirby on Samish Island last fall.  These outstanding Camp Fire members are the first to earn this coveted award in Samish Council since 2006. Samish Council is comprised of Island, San Juan, Skagit, and Whatcom Counties.
