Camp Fire is my daughter’s favorite part of the day and she is always coming home singing new songs and telling me about all the different activities they did that day. The teachers are very patient and welcoming to my daughter on a daily basis. They have made her transition into Pre-k more enjoyable and easier.

IDEA Afterschool Program Parent

I used to have my kids in other after-care programs, and I can say without doubt that Camp Fire is the best place for my kids. They simply love it. The site directors are great people. They manage the children and they respect them.

Westcliff Afterschool Program Parent

The Camp Fire staff really care about the kids. I appreciate that my child is able to be creative, she loves building things out of cardboard.
