Camp Fire, formerly Camp Fire USA, originally Camp Fire Girls of America, is a nationwide American youth organization that began in 1910.[1] The organization has been co-ed since 1975[1] and welcomes youth from pre-kindergarten through age 21. Camp Fire was the first nonsectarian, multicultural organization for girls in America.[2] Its programsemphasize camping and other outdoor activities for youth.

Its informal roots extend back to 1910, with efforts by Mrs. Charles Farnsworth in Thetford, Vermont and Luther Gulick M.D. and his wife Charlotte Vedder Gulick on Sebago Lake, near South Casco, Maine.[3][4] Camp Fire Girls, as it was known at the time, was created as the sister organization to the Boy Scouts of America.[5] The organization changed its name in 1975 to Camp Fire Boys and Girls when membership eligibility was expanded to include boys. In 2001, the name Camp Fire USA was adopted,[6] and in 2012 it became Camp Fire.

Camp Fire's programs, including small group experiences, after-school programs, camping and environmental education, child care and service learning, build confidence in younger children and provide hands-on, youth driven leadership experiences for older youth.
