Review for Camp Fire First Texas, Fort Worth, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I began my work with Camp Fire First Texas in 2010 as my "retirement gig". I'm still here 10 years later, because it gives me hope that we are making the world a more welcoming place for children and youth.

Camp Fire helps youth dig deep inside and discover their "sparks," their personally defined nuggets of potential. Helping a young person become who they want to be takes time and encouragement. It takes paying attention to what sparks a passion. At Camp Fire, that's what we do. We listen, we encourage, and we provide the opportunity to uncover each young person's unique interests. We help youth become the exceptional people they are destined to be, buoyant with potential to do anything they dream of doing.

Camp Fire is led by professional, caring adults using research based best practice methods. Program leaders are highly trained role models, who encourage young people to be all they can be. Camp Fire is open to everyone. We embrace the uniqueness of every youth, teen, and family we serve. Camp Fire is participant-centered--identifying passions and sparks. Youth are actively engaged and are given a voice, which helps build self-esteem and self-reliance.
