I don’t get stuck because I can always come back to the growth mindset that I learned from Camp Fire…
Jakob D., College Senior; Camp Fire Alum, Former Counselor
My time as a Camp Fire camp counselor is something I’m especially proud of. I learned to never give up, to always keep trying…what I learned from Camp Fire has helped me of live my life with forward momentum. I keep trying to learn new skill sets. I don’t get stuck because I can always come back to the growth mindset that I learned from Camp Fire, and from my elders.
I saw some spark come back to my son, and I am a grateful mama.
My son had many difficulties in 3rd grade, and he was so defeated by the end of the school year. He wasn’t excited about a new camp, but quickly changed his mind after the first day. He also won a Leadership Award, and for the kid that didn’t win anything all school year, it was so very meaningful. I saw some spark come back to my son, and I am a grateful mama.
