CFW Basics

The camp is not named for the city of Ft. Worth, rather it is named for the diocese.
Because the “Local Church” is the
Diocese of Ft. Worth and this camp seeks to serve the whole diocese.

CFW2 is a Camp Fort Worth retreat that happens in the spring of each year. It is designed to take CFW to a deeper level and train the A-team in pear leadership.
It is a prerequisite to be on the A-team, but it is a great experience for anyone still in high school, even if they do not desire to be on the A-team
​CFW2 2016 Dates
March 4-6
April 22-24


The Alumni Team (A-Team) is a group of high school students who have already attended camp and return to be peer leaders. They lead by example and in doing so are powerful witnesses to the love of Jesus
