Camp Fire Alaska | Light the Fire Within

Registration Info

First Come, First Served

Camp Fire accepts children into our programs on a first-come, first-served basis.
The registering adult must register their child for each session desired every year. Camp Fire holds the registering adult responsible for all fees unless another adult sends us a letter in writing indicating their responsibility for all or part of the program fees.


When registering your child, there will be a registration fee as well as a deposit. Both fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. The registration fee is an annual fee. Registration is good for one program year: A program year starts in January. This means regardless of how many programs you register for, you will only pay one registration fee. A $50 fee per child is required upon registration.

We also have a $35 deposit fee in order to hold your child’s spot. This deposit is per program and per child, and will be applied to the first billing statement for that program.

A current physical, dated within 11 months of the start date and including the date of the most recent tetanus shot, is required prior to attendance.

We have scholarships to help with program costs. To learn more, click on the scholarship button below.

The Camp Fire Alaska main office operates on the ancestral land of the Dena’ina people. Camp Fire Alaska runs programing on the lands of the Athabascan, Yup’ik, Chup’ik, Sougpiaq, and Inupiaq peoples. We value and thank them for their current and historic commitment to and protection of this land. We pledge to assist, in partnership, in the environmental stewardship of these lands. We strive to learn more about the history of the Native peoples of Alaska and the historic trauma they have suffered. We commit to being an active ally through activities, actions, and organizational decisions and practices. We understand that this is a dynamic process through which our Land Acknowledgement practices, and statement will evolve as we receive feedback from tribal partners and acquire a deeper understanding of and from the Native peoples of Alaska.
