It is true, a summer camp experience at YMCA Camp Flaming Arrow is fun, exciting and adventurous! However, it is also true that summer camp is much, much more. We believe that camp is a magical place that you can feel too. A summer camp experience is one of the most formative experiences in a young person's life. At camp, values are acquired, relationships built and new skills learned. From the moment campers arrive they are welcomed, appreciated and cherished. All camp activities are designed to build self-esteem, promote cooperation, and model healthy relationships. Campers leave camp with new friends, increased self-confidence and memories that last a lifetime!
This is the fourth year my son Sean has attended YMCA Camp Flaming Arrow. Each summary, he comes back changed for the better. The caring and guidance provided by the counselors and staff is simply wonderful. The programs in place for self improvement and growth are very effective and motivational. Seam is more self aware, and the code established though the Ragger's Program is always at the forefront of his mind when making important decisions. These life skills are so important and will help shape my son into a wonderful caring man. Already he is planning to proceed through the LIT program and eventually become a counselor himself. Thank you for all you do!
