YMCA CAMP FLAMING ARROW
Catch the Spirit of Camp! At CFA we’re proud to offer you and your family a camp experience enhanced by our mission and values. We pride ourselves on many things: exciting activities, a beautiful location and passionate staff. However, our true pride is in our core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, and Faith.
Established in 1927, CFA has been serving participants with mission-based programming for over 80 years. The mission of the YMCA of Greater San Antonio is to put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. Our camping goal is to provide campers a camp experience rich in tradition centered on the five core values, allowing the camper to gain independence and a higher self-worth and lifelong memories.
We hold 8 weeks of traditional summer camp every year for youth ages 8 to 15, along with our leadership development programs for 16 and 17 year olds, and Rookie Camp for ages 6 to 8. From August to May, we offer many opportunities for retreat programming, ranging from weekend retreats to one day team events. Between our many core value-centered programs, CFA serves over 3000 people a year.
The name YMCA Camp Flaming Arrow was adopted in the early 1970s with the addition to girls to the program. With 213 acres and almost a mile of river front on the south fork of the Guadalupe River, YMCA Camp Flaming Arrow has been a stronghold for YMCA camping in the Texas Hill Country. CFA has pride in its service of persons of all ages, ethnic groups and religious affiliations through its history. With our strong scholarship program, we have also been able to include families from all walks of life.
We'll see you soon!
