What is Camp Fort Worth?

Camp Ft. Worth is a service-ministry "mission trip at home" summer camp for teen agers that is sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Ft. Worth. CFW builds the Kingdom of God while drawing you closer to Him. God, Father loves and He sends. He loved the world so much He sent His Son Jesus. CFW is a place where God's love, sends YOU!!

At Camp Ft. Worth you will experience the love of the Father in the person of His Son Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit in a profound way through:

  • Service work
  • Daily Mass
  • Friendships made
  • Prayer time
  • Praise and Worship
  • Contact with the poor of our diocese

Jesus said the poor would always be with us. He also sends us to their aide. Camp Ft. Worth is a small effort to raise awareness to the plight of the poor in our diocese and to encourage youth to add service to the poor of the world to their lifestyle as Catholic Christians.

Some Basic Info

Who can attend?

Incoming 10th grader (age 15 or older) thru Graduated Senior. No youth can attend on their own, they must come as a part of a parish group

Cost - $101.00

What exactly is it?

Each participant will be placed in a group of about 12 youth and adults. Each group will travel to a different work site each day. We strive to spend a day working in these areas: One day each with organizations that serve the homeless, at risk children, and the elderly, as well a day in a workshop making baby cribs and a day at the "home" church site (doing odd jobs).

Showers Since the place we stay may not be equipped with shower facilities for a group our size we will shower in the afternoon after working either at a school, the Y.M.C.A. or at a shelter.

Meals

Every parish that sends a group must provide either a breakfast or a dinner. We do this so the camp experience goes beyond the students and to keep the cost of camp down lunch is provided by Camp Ft. Worth.
