Camp Fire Camp El Tesoro was established in 1934 and has welcomed generations of campers across its iconic swinging bridge.
El Tesoro, Spanish for “ The Treasure”, is 223 acres bordered by two natural water sources, Fall Creek and the Brazos River, in Granbury, Texas.
Blessed with expansive views of the rippling river and wide-open space of the blackland prairie, the natural terrain and native landscape provide visitors an escape from the modern world. This picturesque haven of natural beauty has been home to Native American tribes, early Spanish explorers, turn of the 19th-century pioneers and outdoor enthusiasts. It’s currently the home of co-ed overnight campers, day campers, grief campers, teachers and students learning about nature, and groups retreating to connect and experience outdoor adventures.
Camp Fire First Texas embarked on a Capital Campaign in 2010 to renovate and upgrade Camp El Tesoro facilities so that future generations can experience the magic of camp for years to come.
Whether you spent your summers at El Tesoro as a camper, a counselor, or in any other capacity, your presence at these events will help us celebrate the rich history of our beloved camp. We will be sharing stories, photos, and memories from the past 90 years, and we invite you to bring any memorabilia you might have to contribute to the nostalgia.
