Going from a footprint of 343 parking lot spaces from previous years at Bass Pro Shops in Grapevine, to this area of 1200 lot spaces at Toyota Stadium will be a very large expansion and an opportunity for the Frisco community to really get behind a grass roots project, with the intent to build Camp Craig Allen in Frisco.
Since 2007, Camp Craig Allen has worked tirelessly to raise money and awareness to benefit people with physical disabilities. Just as they have the past seven years, Camp Craig Allen is having an amateur BBQ fundraiser to meet the goal of building a barrier-free facility with no age limit. Fundraising efforts from the 2013 fundraiser allowed an expansion of programs including the North Texas Wheelchair Hockey League. Programs continue throughout the year for so many families across North Texas.
