|For Youth-Serving Providers|
With small budgets, staff turnover, and growing numbers of children, operating a successful school-age child care program can be a difficult task. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have easy-to-use, pre-planned programming, along with staff training and support to improve the quality of your program―all at a very reasonable cost? Camp Fire USA now provides all that and more!
Camp Fire USA Small Group Programs are available to existing before-school, after-school and out-of-school care programs. Our staff will assess your needs, and customize Camp Fire USA’s developmentally appropriate curriculum to strengthen the quality of your program!
Our programs are designed to deliver real outcomes including caring, confidence and leadership skill building.
Our Out-of-School-Time Partners receive all of the following:
On-Site Training and Assistance
We will guide you through a self-assessment, resulting in a quality improvement plan featuring Camp Fire USA programming. We'll train your staff to implement this program, including customized curriculum planning. And we don't stop there - we're available for ongoing technical assistance whenever you need help!
The Camp Fire USA program focuses on five areas: creativity, self-discovery, family, future, and the environment. It's user-friendly and flexible, helping reduce lesson-planning time and allowing staff more time with the children. The program can be implemented in many different ways - daily, weekly, or as a choice among other choices - whatever suits your needs!
