Campfire CEO, Keith Thomajan, visited to tell us about the history of Campfire, which used to be only for girls but has been co-ed for 34 years. Campfire now serves 10,000 young people, ages 3-18, through programs and low income schools.
Camp Namanu is set in the Sandy River Valley on 5522 acres. They keep tradition even in our modern world by not allowing electronics while at the camp. What camp is about is connecting with nature, developing leadership, compassion, self steam, and we've been doing it well for 85 years.
Things to do include: swimming in the pool, doing arts and crafts, working on our decades old looms, and many other things. There are also magnificent songs, games and activities that have been played for decades, but also, very fresh and, and it's a hip 21st century place.
