Adventure Club’s Summer Fun is a weekly themed based summer program. We schedule fun field trips that support these weekly themes. Each day is filled with exciting activities and time with friends. Your child will be outside each day and will be given plenty of opportunity to run, jump, slide and play. This is time to just be a kid! In addition to weekly field trips, we will also have fun “on site” activities such as art, cooking, woodworking, and much more! Adventure Club will provide a healthy snack twice a day and lunches must be brought from home.

Fall 2017: Grades 6-8
We’re taking Youth Voice & Youth Choice very serious this week, seriously fun! These middle school campers will plan and coordinate their whole week of adventures. With our ORCA Passes in hand, we’ll see where the week takes us! For youth entering grades 6-8 in fall 2017.
Monday: Planning & Preparation
We’ll take some time to get to know one another and then jump straight into planning. Campers will work together to research adventure options around Pierce County. We’ll set aside time to learn about each youth’s interests (we call these Sparks!) and be sure it’s a worthwhile week for all.
- Help decide where to go each day — so exciting!
- How to get there: bus, train, link, or simply walk
- Work within the weekly spending budget for activities (admission, additional fares, projects etc.)
- Help create a rainy day/back-up plan
Tuesday – Friday: Adventures!
We’ll have to wait and see what the campers decide. Here are a few possibilities:
- Train to Tacoma, then ride the Link downtown and check out the Museum of Glass
- Bus to Pt, Defiance, then ferry to Vashon to visit our friends at Camp Sealth
- Train to Lakewood, bus to American Lake for picnic and swimming
Why Camp Fire?
Camp Fire was created to guide young people on a journey of self-discovery. At Camp Fire camps, youth have the opportunity to dig deep inside and discover their sparks, their personally defined ideas of potential. Our society needs a generation of future leaders who understand the dynamics of community living, appreciate inclusion, and are one with nature. At Camp Fire, we’re proud of the role we play in guiding young lives to appreciate themselves and the world they live in.
