Fathers & Flashlights

Fathers & Flashlights is a FUNdraising family event.  It provides an opportunity for fathers and their children to spend some quality time together in the heart of our community. Fathers & Flashlights is open to families zoned to West University Elementary school.  Registration will open in late summer.

Unfortunately, due to continued uncertainties brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Fathers & Flashlights 2020. 


Though we won't be able to camp together, please join us and other West U families in honoring the spirit of Fathers & Flashlights by camping at home on November 7, when the campout would have been held.


We will be missing this event terribly this year - not only for what it brings to us as a community, but also for the important role it plays in raising funds for our beloved parks. Even though we won't be together, we encourage you to consider a donation to West U Parks in lieu of your typical participation or sponsorship. 


Make a Donation  

Each donation of $100 or more will receive a community spirit yard sign to show your support!  

Thank you to our F&F 2020 Camp at Home sponsor Gibson Dunn.

F&F 2019

Thank you to everyone who participated in Fathers & Flashlights 2019, and in particular to the sponsors and underwriters.  


255 dads and 527 children camped and over 250 mom/parent volunteers helped make the campout an over the top success.  The event raised over $156,000 for West U parks and green spaces.  Thank you to the event chairs who gave it their all:  The Huth, Morrison and Parker Families.  Don’t worry, they are chairing it again for 2020!

Pictures tell the story. Thank you to Lauren DeFrehn for the photos.
