You can make a difference!

We know that this summer isn’t what you expected or hoped for. Right now, campers should be meeting new friends, discovering new passions, laughing, singing, and learning. However, the health and safety of our campers, families, and staff is of the utmost importance to us. It was with this in mind that we made difficult decision to cancel all programs at Hantesa and throughout the Des Moines area due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

But summer isn’t canceled!

Camp Fire Heart of Iowa has launched several new initiatives and programs to help fill your days with joy and laughter – even if you can’t be at camp with us! We need your help now more than ever to continue these efforts and to help make summer 2021 #TheBestSummerEver!

Register for our Run for the Hills Virtual 5K to show your support for Camp Fire and ensure we continue to provide life-changing summer camp programs in 2021!

Just $1 enters you in the 5K with a printable bib for race day. Upgrade your registration, for $21, to receive a limited edition Run for the Hills honor!
