Dear Camp Fire members,
On behalf of the board of directors of Camp Fire Central Coast of California, we appreciate your sincere support and patience as we work through the processes of electing a new board and bringing our local Camp Fire Central Coast programming back to the community. Please welcome our new board members:
President: Susan Hanson-Fitch
Vice President: Gary Gebhardt

Directors: Renee Davila, Crystal Fisher, Daphne Boatright, Deanna Duarte Clift, Gary Gebhardt, Heather Muran, Heather Weare, Howard Hess
We have a lot of work to do, but with our board and you as members, we know we can dig deep, roll up our sleeves, and have Camp Fire out once again helping our youth succeed!
A lot has happened since the pandemic hit in mid-March. Camp Fire staff was fired, doors closed, and communication from our board members at that time stopped. But the spark survived--we had dedicated leaders and parents working together to bring safe, virtual programming to kids during the pandemic. Many friends of Camp Fire donated funds to keep bills paid, return calls, answer questions from community partners, and work together to bring the special meeting and a fair election to our members.
At this time, we are working to hire staff and plan to open safe programs for our youth over the next several months.
