Camp Fire Fort Worth


Alumni Spotlights

“The tenets of Camp Fire taught me that you really can be a strong woman of moral fiber in a healthy body, and you can do the right thing for your community…When you’re a Camp Fire Girl, you can do anything!”
Betsy Price
Mayor of Fort Worth

“The beauty of Camp Fire, to me, is its intentionality and its inclusiveness. It’s not about just finding things for kids to do. It’s about finding ways for young people to be resilient, no matter their circumstances… It’s about leadership, civic engagement, involvement. It’s about those three little words: ‘WoHeLo.’”
Liz Darling
President/CEO, OneStar Foundation and Chair,
Camp Fire National Board of Trustees

“My time at Camp El Tesoro helped shape who I am today. My leadership and organization skills developed – plus, being a city girl, I didn’t have a lot of opportunities to get outside and ‘camp.’ It was outside of my comfort zone, but it was good for me – and gave me a great appreciation for air conditioning!”
Dr. Marie Holliday
Fort Worth Dentist and Entrepreneur

“I first became involved with Camp Fire at the age of 6 or 7 – my mother signed me up for the local troop associated with our school. One of my favorite memories is my first camping trip. My dad went with me, and we had a great time – I had never slept in a cabin or really participated in any of the outdoor activities we did that weekend. Camp Fire was instrumental in teaching me invaluable lessons on life, friendship and community.”
Philip Gonzalez
Director of Marketing, Fort Worth Museum
of Science and History

“One of the things I love about Camp Fire First Texas is how it has stayed connected to the needs of our community. In particular, its efforts supporting childcare quality are so impressive – I’m blown away. Children in our community have options that never would have been possible without Camp Fire.”
Marilyn Gilbert
Executive Vice President, Marketing
Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce
