See why teachers, principals, and students can’t stop raving about our high-quality Out-of-School-Time (OST) and in-school programs. It’s way more than homework tutoring and supervision.
Between Teens in Action, Counselor-in-Training (CIT), Wohelo Award, and National Youth Advisory Cabinet (YAC), we not only activate teens but intentionally seek their valuable feedback in all we do.
Overnight/resident camps, day camps, inclusion camps, LGBTQ2S+ friendly camps, environmental education—all are welcome, and there is something for everyone at Camp Fire Green Country.
Schools across Northeast Oklahoma partner with Camp Fire Green Country when they want to offer strong, research-based programs. Schools choose Camp Fire because we are laser-focused on helping their students succeed, and are reputable partners so they can better serve their families and communities.
Every afterschool program is structured in collaboration with schools to ensure that we are supporting their goals and complementing the education that its students are getting during the school day. These clubs participate in fun, intentional activities that support social-emotional learning. Activities range from arts, science, technology, and more. The below stop motion video, titled "Pink and Green", was created by a Camp Fire participant to explore various ways that technology and creativity meet.
Camp Fire’s highly trained, caring staff encourage every child or teen to manage their time in a way that aligns with their passions and talents. Our staff also gather youth input to incorporate in activities so they can better engage them each day.
Traditional club programs are what most of our alumnae from Camp Fire Girls remember fondly. These clubs are volunteer-led and volunteers are usually a parent who has a passion for Camp Fire. They are paired with a group of youth who work through a Camp Fire curriculum before or after school. Clubs typically go on field trips, undertake service projects, and do other activities to earn emblems and learn life skills.
There’s almost nothing more inspiring than seeing young people who are ready to shape the world and make a difference—it’s this energy we love to harness through our teen service and leadership programs. We work to provide impactful community service opportunities and leadership programs that will help teens gain valuable experiences, develop important life skills, and become engaged citizens now.
This program is youth-led and youth-driven! While guided by trained adults who act as mentors, the teens identify community needs, decide what issues they want to advocate for, and then take action on those issues to make an impact in their community. Everyone benefits and it’s a beautiful thing. Past Teens in Action groups have built new parks, rehabbed old parks, met with politicians, gotten involved in local elections, tutored, brought new resources to schools in need, and more. As teens see the results of their work, they become more motivated and thrive. This is why we do what we do.
Camp Waluhili offers an inclusive, supportive environment for all youth to explore nature, their sparks and make new friends.
