Camp Fire North Shore’s mission is to build caring, confident youth and future leaders. Helping a young person become who they want to be takes time and encouragement. We listen, we encourage, and we provide the opportunity to uncover each young person’s individual interests. We help young people become the exceptional people they are destined to be. At Camp Fire North Shore, we seek to educate and measure progress in up to eight developmental assets in youth. These assets include interpersonal confidence, cultural competency, peaceful conflict resolution, planning and decision making, resistance skills, other adult relationships, personal power, and appreciation for the environment and nature. Each of our programs, clubs, after school care, summer camp and Self-Reliance Workshops, is carefully crafted to address one or more of these assets.
Through our programs we promote moral, social and interpersonal development for area children and young adults. Our agency is a reliable source of education, advocacy and support meeting the needs of the children we serve and their families.
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!
Camp Fire, formerly Camp Fire USA, is a nationwide American youth organization that began in 1910.
The organization has been co-ed since 1975 and welcomes youth from pre-k through age 21.
The Camp Fire North Shore Council was originally established by the Lynn Lions Club in the 1960's. We are now a co-ed organization serving children from across the North Shore area, offering several programs throughout the year including, a State Licensed After School Program, Self-Reliance Program, Teens In Action, Club Program and a 9 week Summer Camp for kids ages 5-13. Through our programs we promote moral, social and interpersonal development for area children and young adults.
