Camp Fire First Texas has been an inclusive, innovative leader in youth development since 1914.

Woven into every Camp Fire experience is our proven framework for thriving. We call it Thrive{ology}. It’s research-based and measurable. Our framework provides opportunities for youth to grow and succeed in life. Programs include camping, licensed afterschool enrichment, teen services, environmental education, and school readiness, in addition to professional development for early educators. In Camp Fire, children and youth find a safe, fun and inclusive place – a place where they form lasting relationships, develop a sense of belonging and make positive contributions to the lives of their families and their community.
