Camp DaKaNi, meaning “a day in the out-of-doors,” is owned and operated by Camp Fire Heart of Oklahoma. It is located on 33 wooded acres in the heart of Oklahoma City. Camp Fire camping gives young people a chance to learn how to live and share with others and to become closely involved with the natural environment. The well-being and safety of campers is our first concern. Camp DaKaNi, in its 57th year as a day camp, is open to all boys and girls, ages 5-18, regardless of race, gender, creed, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disabilities* or economic status. Campers do not have to be members of Camp Fire.
*Camp DaKaNi programs are available to persons with disabilities. We will make every effort to meet the needs of all those who wish to apply. If your child has a disability, please call Penn Henthorn at Camp Fire Heart of Oklahoma at (405) 254-2080.
Young people want to shape the world. Camp Fire provides the opportunity to find their spark, lift their voice, and discover who they are. In Camp Fire, it begins now. Light the fire within.
Camp is an experiential education like no other. Children and youth learn life lessons, such as independence, leadership, and self-confidence, in an environment designed specifically for them. Camp is made up almost entirely of teachable moments. Through fun and hand-on experiences, campers have opportunities to grow and develop the skills need to be productive, successful adults. www.acacamps.org
Why Camp Fire
Camp Fire was created to guide young people on their journeys to self-discovery. The founders of Camp Fire felt strongly that young people need experiences that teach them to care for themselves, their environment, and the people around them.
