Organization Background:

Camp Fire Central Oregon connects youth to the outdoors, to others, and to themselves. We build strong relationships and provide powerful youth experiences in out-of-school time programs where youth can learn, lead, have fun and be themselves. This is how we support young people as they navigate the challenges of growing up in the world today and learn the life skills they need to thrive. 

Camp Fire’s Statement of Inclusion:

Camp Fire believes in the dignity and the intrinsic worth of every human being. We welcome, affirm, and support young people and adults of all abilities and disabilities, experiences, races, ethnicities, socio-economic backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, religion and non-religion, citizenship and immigration status, and any other category people use to define themselves or others. We strive to create safe and inclusive environments that celebrate diversity and foster positive relationships.

Camp Fire strives to integrate a diversity of perspectives in our team. People of color, people with disabilities, veterans, people who identify as LGBTQ2S+, and candidates with diverse life experiences are strongly encouraged to apply.

Camp Fire Programs Overview:  

Teen Service and Leadership: Our teen service and leadership programs challenge 6th-12th graders to learn what it means to be a leader and to serve their community.  These programs run as after school or weekend clubs and opportunities during the year and as stand-alone week long experiences in the summer, including service challenge weeks and counselor in training style programs.  Teen programs could require evening and weekend hours and possible travel to neighboring communities. We have also added a week-long traveling service program during Spring Break. 

School Year K-5: Camp Fire After school (CFA) is a flexible and fun option for families of youth in K-5th grade looking to balance after school care with enrichment opportunities and social-emotional skill development.  No School Day Camps are full day camps on days when elementary schools are not in session (except for major holidays.) School Year K-5 programs are filled with time outdoors, fun challenges, STEAM activities, games and songs, and are designed to support youth in exploring their sparks, practicing social skills, creating connections, building community, and gaining confidence. 

Outdoor Programs: Camp Fire is expanding the beloved Tumalo Day Camp program to neighboring communities outside of Bend. In its pilot phase, work with this program could include meetings with community partners, outreach in rural communities, and program delivery in rural communities. 

Robotics Programs: Camp Fire has been able to expand our robotics programs over the past few years. Tech Programs give students an opportunity to learn how to build and code with LEGO Robots. Youth will learn basic engineering, building, and programming skills, along with time management, teamwork, and project design.

Educational Aspect

Position Overview:  

The purpose of this internship is to give the applicant experience working in the youth development field while also giving them flexibility to explore a special project of their interest. Interns will have an opportunity to develop and implement curriculum, assist in program planning, and learn the inner workings of a small non-profit organization. This position will give the intern opportunities to engage with students from kindergarten through high school in a variety of program settings. During the internship, interns will split time between professional development training (~5%), planning (~15%), direct service (~30%), as well as a special project* (~50%). 

*Special projects will be determined based upon intern interest and organizational needs. Examples of special projects have included: Updating outdoor ed curriculum and training materials, planning and executing overnight camping trips for teens, planning and implementing service and leadership programs for teens, scripting and filming training videos for outdoor ed staff, design of social, emotional learning activities

Interns will have regular meetings with a supervisor to review progress and ensure expectations are being met. Goal setting, feedback, and reflection will be integrated into the intern’s experience, with coaching and guidance from their supervisor. Interns will also be trained in Camp Fire’s “Thriveology'' Framework. This includes developing a growth mindset and the importance of developmental relationships. Interns will learn how to facilitate an inclusive environment, develop youth driven programming, and encourage equitable participation. Interns will have access to professional development training through Camp Fire’s Learning Lab - an educational resource with over 25 hours of online courses which cover a variety of topics related directly to the delivery of quality youth development programs.
