The one thing in my life that made me who I am is my membership in Camp Fire. My mom let me join with I was 6 and I have stayed involved for over 50 years. In Camp Fire I learned to be a leader, that I was a strong person with many talents, that I could do anything I tried and to try things that I had never tired. I learned that there were amazing adults who cared about me, our community and giving service. There were many areas where I was not at the top of the class but in CAmp Fire it did not matter. I was accepted for who I was and encouraged to increase my knowledge and skills so I could be successful in life. I also learned that the out of doors was a great place to learn. I learned to survive difficult situations, to be a critical thinker, to cook using limited resources--a skill that has served me well, and so very much more. My children all are members of Camp Fire and today they are well vested in the WoHeLo Spirit of service, caring, and being amazing young people.
