About Campfire

A full service advocacy and public relations firm, Campfire helps you tell your story on your terms and with maximum impact.

Our team has been tested in tough environments. We refined our craft in the Maryland Governor’s Office, the halls of Congress, leading business litigation law firms and statewide advocacy campaigns.

We use this diverse experience to help clients navigate the intersection of media, business and government to persuade their most important audience.

Whether you seek to raise awareness about a new product or galvanize support for a major project or policy initiative, we bring a campaign style approach to communications that sets you apart from the field.

Headquartered in Annapolis, Campfire brings together media professionals with diverse backgrounds – PR, advertising, social media, web design and more – who love to help clients win.
