YMCA Camp Flaming Arrow


About Us

Catch the Spirit of Camp! Welcome, or welcome back, to YMCA Camp Flaming Arrow, or CFA as we like to call it. We’re proud to offer you and your family a camp experience enhanced by our mission and values. CFA prides itself on many things, like exciting activities, a beautiful location and passionate staff; however, our true pride is our focus on our core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, and Faith.

We've been camping in the Hill Country since 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, caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith, allowing the camper to gain independence and a higher self-worth and lifelong memories.

CFA offers many opportunities for the whole family to escape to a serene location.  First, there is traditional summer camp for youth ages 8 to 15. Then there are our leadership development programs for 16 and 17 year olds, and of course 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.

YMCA Camp Flaming Arrow, a YMCA of Greater San Antonio branch, was established in 1927 as the San Antonio YMCA Boys Camp.  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 at YMCA CAMP FLAMING ARROW!
