In 1975, membership was extended to include boys, making Camp Fire USA an all-inclusive youth focused organization. Camp Fire USA has remained steadfast in its commitment and mission to help youth of all backgrounds develop positive self-esteem, self-confidence and leadership skills, while evolving with the changing needs of the community.
