Camp Fire Experience

My child calls me every day and asks me to pick him up as late as possible because he loves Camp Fire and all the fun activities so much.

James, Camp Fire Parent

I don’t have to worry about where my kids are, who they’re playing with or who’s taking care of them. Camp Fire has allowed me to continue to work but it’s more than that. Camp Fire has become our family. Thank you for taking such good care of my kids and treating them like they were your own.

Betsy, Camp Fire Parent

When I see the students at Camp Fire in the morning, I see smiling faces. They’re at ease, they don’t looked stressed and they’re enjoying being here. That’s what I love.

John Kito, Tyson Elementary School Principal

Camp Si-La-Meo is the best summer camp ever!
