Camp Fire Summer Camp
Camp Fire offers traditional Summer Camp programming that serves school-age youth. We are located on the Salem/Lynn border, and have access to 75+ acres of woods, with trails for hiking and outdoor space for other activities. Our programs are designed to provide opportunities for campers to explore safe and fun outdoor camp activities, all under the guidance of qualified specialists and counselors in a low 5:1 camper to staff ratio.
Children are placed into groups with children of the same age. Each group is led by a team of referenced and background checked counselors. Our low camper to staff ratio gives each child the individual attention they need to make friends, participate in new activities and have fun, while still allowing room for self-expression.
Campers will stay with their group for the duration of the week and rotate throughout the specialty activity areas on a daily basis. Activity areas are instructed by our college-aged staff, many of whom are currently pursuing degrees in Education or related fields. Specialists are assigned to an activity area and focus their planning to coordinate with weekly themes.
Specialty activity areas include: Swimming, Cooking, Sports, Nature, Arts & crafts, Skits & Songs, and STEM.
