"Camp Fire gets us outside more often. It gives our family ideas of fun things to do outdoors. I like that the activities take place in a group setting, and that there is always a focus on the environment."
Elsie, Camp Fire Parent
Traditional Clubs are small, co-ed groups of youth in pre-K through high school who meet with trained adult volunteer club leaders to develop leadership skills, self-esteem and resilience. Traditional Clubs are currently located in Travis, and Williamson counties and meet either weekly or bi-weekly. Club experiences offer opportunities to develop planning and decision-making skills while allowing youth to hone skills related to their own interests. Clubs are co-ed and involve pre-Kindergarten ages through high school.
Camp Fire Traditional Clubs value and encourage progression, inclusiveness, recognition, and developing the partnership between youth and adults. Membership in traditional clubs is currently limited as we transition to our new afterschool clubs. If we do not have a traditional club available please join one of our afterschool clubs that meet at local schools and are led by Camp Fire Program Leaders.
Traditional Club Levels
Little Stars (Pre-K)
The program serves as an introduction to Camp Fire and is designed to excite and educate children on a wide range of topics. The Little Stars program helps build confidence in children and activities reflect the developmental needs and interests of Pre-K children.
Starflight (K - 2nd grade)
Youth participate in projects focusing on family, nature and the outdoors while working together and having fun. This level teaches responsibility, decision-making and other valuable skills.
Adventure (3rd - 5th grade)
Adventure members can choose activities to do with their groups, families or individually. Activities are progressive and require the youth to sharpen living skills, make choices and plan activities.
Discovery (6th - 8th grade)
In Discovery, Camp Fire youth explore their roles as members of families, schools, churches, neighborhoods, teams or other groups. Youth explore who they are and who they want to be. Youth will learn how communities work and how, as individuals, they can affect change in their communities.
Horizon (9th - 12th grade)
At this level, teens are encouraged to participate in the activities as individual members or with their club members. Teens are given the opportunity to create and build their own horizons, or futures while examining ideas, values and morals. Reflection projects provide focus for teens on self, choices and decisions, future goals and planning, and self-reliance skills. Teens begin working toward the WoHeLo Award during this stage.
