Core Values

The Heart of Oklahoma Council places high importance on the values that are inherent to the organization.  These help guide us in our work with youth and we utilize them to help in our decisions and direct the way we do business to achieve our goals.


  • Character - Camp Fire is uniquely equipped to build character.  We have created an environment of acceptance, inclusivity, and caring so kids can learn and develop their character.  We teach values of fairness, respect and responsibility for one's actions.
  • Confidence - We encourage healthy risk-taking and challenges.  We build confidence through designed activities. We provide an opportunity to learn self-awareness and accomplishment and to become self-assured and poised.
  • Connection - We celebrate uniqueness and enhance the well-being of all individuals through positive relationships.
  • Competence - No matter the age, learning is continuous. We offer the opportunity to learn healthy habits such as healthy eating, caring for oneself and others and how to recognize unsafe behaviors.
