Camp Fire – Camp CaHiTo has always recognized curious youth exploring their world need a secure place to grow up. And since 1910 we’ve provided that place, through camps. Camp Fire believes when youth get the chance to be outdoors, to work with others in the community, and learn to respect nature they better respect themselves. We’re proud of the role we have played—and continue to play—in guiding young lives to an appreciation of their lives and the world we all live in.
