Overnight Camp General Sessions & Units

General Sessions & Units

No matter a camper’s age or program choice, our staff work with each cabin group to create the session’s activities, making each week unique. Below are the types of activities and living areas that are typical for campers. We strongly recommend coming to one of our open houses so you and your camper can see and experience camp for yourselves! All sessions offer a general, age-appropriate camp program that includes cookouts, hiking, waterfront activities, singing, and crafts.

Camp Fire also emphasizes healthful living in our programs, encouraging campers to “hold onto health” by getting active, getting healthy, and getting involved.
