The out-of-school program is an after-school program for boys and girls from ages 5 through 18. This program began in 1976 and is offered to all children from 22 schools in Wichita Falls, Burkburnett and City View ISD’s. The children are transported in 12 vans to Camp Fire’s Harrell Park where staff members lead them in programs and activities which address issues facing today’s youth. They are taught skills which help them to positively deal with issues of anger and insecurity. Our Out-of-School program prepares youth for the challenges of tomorrow and instills in them a sense of self-worth and confidence which will serve as the foundation for their becoming well adjusted, contributing members of the adult community. One of Camp Fire’s biggest projects this year will be to collaborate with the County Extension Agents, 4-H and FFA on a program called Farm to Table. Hopefully this will help our children understand that their food comes from farms, to the supermarket and then to the kitchen table! This past year we served 715 children. Our “Teens in Action” program (6th thru 8th grade) is growing. This year City View Junior High will join our “Teens in Action” program.
