Camp Fire North Texas
…Ariyelle has attended the Camp Fire After-School program since she was 5 years old. When she first came to the program Ariyelle struggled to follow directions and she had difficulties with the other children. She was one of those children who would tell you, “You can’t tell me what to do, cause you ain’t my Momma.” Our attempts to channel her aggression went unheeded until she began to see and feel her spark. Despite these setbacks, Ariyelle is growing into a wonderful and energetic child. She now tells us that Camp Fire has taught her to be the kind of person she wants to be, kind and caring.
Camp Fire North Texas serves over 2,000 members annually through programs which inspire creativity, stimulate curiosity and teach life skills. The children we serve range in age from three through high school and participate in projects and activities provided through traditional clubs, outdoor/environmental venues, the Special Services After-School Program, the Day Camp & Swimming Program, and “Teens in Action”. Our caring staff provides encouragement, support and individual attention to youth who are struggling with issues at home, school and with their peers.
