Camp Fire Heart of Oklahoma, operates three distinct camp programs at their Camp DaKaNi facility in Northeast Oklahoma City. Nestled on 33 acres along Hefner Road just West of I-35, 15 minutes North of Downtown Oklahoma City. Camp Fire programs, each with its own unique curriculum and atmosphere help build caring, confident youth and future leaders. Every program is designed with a variety of activities to enhance team-building, confidence and independent thinking. Camp Fire programs are open to all boys and girls, ages 5-18, regardless of race, gender, creed, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disabilities* or economic status.
Camp DaKaNi welcomes youth 5 to 13 years old to attend camp as campers. At camp, Campers are pre-assigned to small groups of youth of similar ages. Groups are led by a Camp Counselor and participate in scheduled and group planned activities. A healthy and well-balanced lunch is provided everyday for campers by Camp DaKaNi.
Camp C.A.N.O.E. (Children with Autism Need Outdoor Experiences), is open to children with autism, grades K-12. Camp C.A.N.O.E. is a summer day camp designed specifically for children with high functioning to mildly severe autism. While each day will be filled with a variety of outdoor activities to enhance the development of social, motor, and sensory processing skills, the safety of campers is a top priority. Additionally, all counselors have received standardized camp training plus specialized Camp C.A.N.O.E. education.
The Great Outdoor Teaching Classrom (G.O.T.C.H.A.) allows children ages 5-11 to come out to Camp DaKaNi for a day camp experience during the academic school year holiday breaks. During this time, youth will learn how science effects the speed of the zip line, how trajectory helps you hit a target in archery and how gravity helps you repel off the rock wall. Extended care opportunities are available.
