Camp Fire

Program History

The Seattle Buddhist Church Camp Fire program is the oldest continuously-operating Camp Fire group in the United States. The program was honored in July 2010 at a Camp Fire USA centennial celebration at Magnuson Park.

Founded in 1934, suspended during World War II, then reactivated in 1950, the Seattle Buddhist Church Camp Fire group continues to instill self-confidence and empower youth.

Camp Fire is open to both boys and girls in pre-k through 12th grade.
