About Camp Wilani:

Campers 6-17  can have a transformative, positive, and memorable experience at our flagship summer camp program. Camp Wilani at Havenroot is held at the historic location in Veneta, Oregon which is owned and stewarded by Ecotone Projets, LLC. We are thrilled about our partnership with this eco-conscious organization that is well aligned with our mission and values.

At its heart, the Camp Wilani Program is about immersing young people in a caring, inclusive environment in which each child can safely push their boundaries, create lasting friendships, disconnect from electronics and be immersed in nature. We recruit, hire, and comprehensively train adult staff people to be exemplary facilitators of a healthy and positive experience for all of our campers.  Every staff person is rigorously interviewed, reference checked, and is required to have an FBI criminal background check.

Sparks are flying around here!

. . . both literally and figuratively – and we are fired up about it. The Spark Roast coffee is a fun partnership between youth development organization Camp Fire and Campfire Coffee all about igniting the flame in the young people in our communities. Spark Roast is roasted over a real open flame campfire with all the smokey goodness you’d imagine. The sparks from the crackling wood dance around the coffee as it roasts to impart a smooth, full, low acid, non-bitter flavor. A real treat for even the self-proclaimed “non-coffee drinkers.” Order your limited edition Spark Roast HERE!

What’s more is why the two organizations with the same awesome name made this happen: A shared passion for developing young people through time well spent in the outdoors and truly believing that igniting a spark in the kids in our communities is worth it. They are truly, absolutely incredible kids. (Plus, a little spark of caffeine in the adults won’t hurt a bit.)
Campfire Coffee Co. is the proud sponsor of Absolutely Incredible Kid Day® 2021! Spread some good. Tell a kid in your life why they are amazing on March 18 for #KidDay.
