A 7-year-old boy attended the weekend camping program, Dad and Me, with his father at Camp Fire’s Camp El Tesoro near Granbury. At the end of the day’s activities, he stopped along the trail, turned to his father and said, “Dad - This is the best day of my life!” As adults, our role in our children’s lives is to help them live meaningful and happy lives and become caring, confident members of our community.
Camp Fire’s Absolutely Incredible Kid Luncheon is a call to action asking adults to show their love and support to all kids – kids we know and kids we don’t know. What better way to let kids know that they are absolutely incredible than by giving them the opportunity to experience a Camp Fire program. You can make the difference in a child’s life by saying “I want to help you have the best day of your life,” by providing them with a scholarship.
By attending and participating in the luncheon, you are giving absolutely incredible kids a chance to participate in Camp Fire programs. Help kids have the best days of their lives.
Kids in Camp Fire programs realize their potential and become self-directed individuals, responsible to themselves and others. They learn while having fun. Our programs help at-risk children and youth become self-reliant community builders; our services provide high quality early care and education programs and professional development for child care providers; and our camping and outdoor education program teaches respect and appreciation for the environment.
*The McFadden Award was established by Camp Fire in 1989 to recognize accomplishments of organizations and individuals that serve youth, heighten public awareness of the needs of young people and encourage others in the community to invest time and money to help improve the lives of young people.
