Inclusion Statement

Camp Fire was founded to give kids who were being marginalized—girls—opportunities no one else was offering them. Throughout its 108+ year history, Camp Fire has continued to build on that tradition of breaking down barriers for all kids.

In 1910, Camp Fire was founded. It was the first multicultural, multiracial, non-sectarian organization for girls, and it gave girls the same outdoor experiences boys already had access to. In 1975, Camp Fire became a co-ed organization, opening up its life-changing programs to boys as well as girls. And in 1993, Camp Fire added sexual orientation to its official inclusion policy, ensuring its camps and programs were safe, welcoming spaces for LGBTQIA kids, staff and volunteers.

Rotary International Mission

The Mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
