Texas Outdoor Family Dallas/Fort Worth

Sponsoring Program: Texas Outdoor Family

The Texas Outdoor Family (TOF) program helps introduce public families and community partner groups to great camping experiences in DFW Area State Parks. Workshop volunteers help in many capacities including: nature hikes, kayaking, fishing, camping gear distribution, geocaching, outdoor cooking, photography, safety management, and more. The TOF program reaches hundreds of participants every year! We could not do it without the assistance of our amazing volunteers.

If you are camping overnight with the program it is preferrable, but not mandatory, to come equipped with your own tent and sleeping pad/mattress. A shared campsite will be provided to you if you volunteer for 8+ hours during the workshop. If you would like to volunteer and/or need to borrow camping gear, please coordinate with Lisa Henderson prior to the event.
