We Help Youth Find Their *Spark*!

Camp Fire Afterschool offers small group experiential learning which incorporates outdoor-based experiences, hands-on activities and project-based learning. Youth participating in Camp Fire Afterschool engage in activities complementing TEKS curriculum through STEAM-based (Science, Tech, Engineering, Art, Math) learning that promotes the development of critical thinking, problem-solving and creativity.


Camp Fire Afterschool is a nurturing, constructive, and fun environment for young people to discover their spark - their unique skills and passions - and adopt a growth mindset. Camp Fire believes in the power of nature to awaken a child's senses, curiosity and spark an ongoing desire to learn.


Throughout the semester, youth learn outdoor skills and environmental stewardship principles. Our programs encourage personal growth by incorporating THRIVE methodology, an evidence-based approach to youth development through a Social Emotional Learning framework.

Camp Fire Afterschool is flexible, and curriculum may be adapted to a school setting, at our Camp Balcones location at Emma Long Park, or in a traditional club environment.

All Camp Fire Programs are guided by our Promise to Children:

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. Light the fire within
