Founded in 1910, Camp Fire was the first nonsectarian, interracial organization for girls (the "Camp Fire Girls") in the United States. Camp Fire North Texas has been enriching the lives of youth in our community and outlying areas since 1915 -100 years this spring. Based on a commitment to the entire family, membership was expanded to include boys in 1976. Camp Fire is an all- inclusive youth development organization focused on providing the skills and tools necessary to lead meaningful, productive lives. In Camp Fire youth are surrounded with positive adult role models which foster a sense of security and belonging and which strengthens belief in themselves, trust in others and hope for the future. The importance of community service and giving back to others is a significant part of the Camp Fire message.
