About Us

Camp Fire USA Central Ohio Council is affiliated with Camp Fire USA, and is a free-standing 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Camp Fire USA was founded in 1910 as America's first nonsectarian, interracial organization for girls and in 1975 expanded services to include boys. Camp Fire’s mission is to build caring, confident youth and future leaders. The mission is achieved through delivering evidence-based programming in Camp Fire clubs, before and after school educational programs, day camp, and various residential camp experiences encompassing Camp Fire’s 12 core values.

Since 1928 we have owned and operated Camp Wyandot, a fun, educational, and nurturing place where all children ages 8-18, no matter their backgrounds, are welcomed. As proven by a returning camper rate of almost 60%, which is higher than the national average, youth enjoy and benefit from the camp experience. Parents report the following impact on their children after attending camp: they return home energized; they exhibit improved confidence and self-esteem; children learn responsibility and independence; and they get exercise and are away from video games and TV. Parents view the camp as a safe, nurturing place where their children have new experiences, meet new friends and learn skills that will last a lifetime.
