My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Camp Fire First Texas, Fort Worth, TX, USA
I grew up in in Fort Worth as a Camp Fire kid. I participated in club and camp programs. My career path was shaped by what I learned in Camp Fire. The career was successful not just because of my skills, it was being able to serve as a leader, colleague, mentor and good citizen.
I returned to Camp Fire 20 years after graduating high school to work on professional staff, and 10 years later, I took a job with the national office of Camp Fire.
Camp Fire in Fort Worth is one of the absolute best organizations in the nation.
As the world has been changing, Camp Fire in Fort Worth has adjusted to the needs of youth in our local community. I was very proud of the work that the Fort Worth Camp Fire worked with corporate leaders and determined that the people taking care of children need training to prepare these children for the work force in the 21st century. That began over 20 years ago and continues today.
