About 20 years ago I took my first steps across Camp El Tesoro’s lovely swinging bridge. Although at the time it felt like I was crossing a grand expanse on a thin swinging rope. Anxious, excited, and filled with wonder, I weathered that adventure to start my first day of camp. Unaware it would set me on a path that, much like the trails at our extraordinary camp, would shape me into the person I am today.

From memories of summer camps, and lifelong friendships, to engaging afterschool and teen programs, from training for the early education community to mentoring and apprenticeship programs. Camp Fire First Texas means so much, to so many people.

A REAL Summer Camp Story

Like many other kids my age, I grew up watching camp movies like The Parent Trap and Camp Rock. Though those movies admittedly aren't the most realistic portrayal of summer camp, watching them made me long to have a magical summer camp experience as the main characters had.
