Camp Fire First Texas’ purpose is to provide opportunities for children, youth, and those who care for them, to realize their potential and become caring, self-directed individuals responsible to themselves and others, and to improve those conditions in society that affect them. 'Our Promise’ serves as our organization’s mission: Young people want to shape world. Camp Fire provides the opportunity to find their spark, lift their voice, and discover who they are. In Camp Fire, it begins now. Light the fire within. Our goal is to provide youth with opportunities to cultivate their inner passions, skills and attributes (or "Sparks") to stimulate Thriving - a forward, purposeful motion toward achieving one’s full potential. Through three social impact areas - represented by Work, Health and Love (WoHeLo - Camp Fire’s original "watchword") - Camp Fire provides the opportunity for more than 22,000 children, youth, families and child care providers annually to explore their sparks, learn to make healthy choices, build new skills and chart a course for success that will carry through the rest of their lives and positively impact their communities.
