ASA staff (Adventure Guides) are trained individuals committed to caring for your children during the hours they are in our care. They uphold biblical standards, as well as standards set by Washington State Childcare Laws.

Director: Stacy Smith


Stacy is a 30-year veteran of Christian camping. She, along with other Firs staff members, founded the After School Adventure Program in 2000, as a means to give children of working parents a place that could be second to home, where they would have enriching and exciting adventures. “Play is the work of heaven and we experience that every day at ASA.”


Program Coordinator: Dana Chauvin
