What type of energy is a campfire?

The log you burn on a campfire is seen as stored potential energy (in the form of chemical energy). Stored potential energy is released by burning the log. The chemical reaction which comes from burning the log is called combustion. Combustion can only happen if oxygen is present. Combustion changes the potential chemical energy into kinetic energy in the form of heat.
