Camp Fire is honored to be the first national youth development organization in the United States to implement the methodology for thriving developed by the Thrive Foundation for Youth ( The Foundation is a true leader in researching and advocating methods that tap into young people’s aspirations and help them achieve their full potential.

Our partnership is a “natural.” Camp Fire has always been actively engaged in the work advocated by Thrive—helping youth discover their skills, passions, and attributes to stimulate personal growth (referred to as the “science of thriving”).

In the first phase of our partnership, Camp Fire is implementing the “Step-It-Up-2-Thrive” process across 20 markets. By 2015, we will have implemented this approach across the entire Camp Fire system.
