Thanks for camping with us!
We all want our kids to have great experiences, so we spend a lot of time looking for new activities for them. However, we should spend just as much time helping them reflect on those amazing experiences. Experiences without reflection are just events. Experiences with reflection lead to celebration, self confidence and an improved self awareness. At FP Fall Camp, kids will experience the power of their reflections.
Reconnect with the ground and the sky; your heart and your community. Get your backpack on! Go climb a waterfall. Build a campfire. Walk in nature.
If you are looking for passionate mentors for your child, give them this chance to spend a week with two amazing educators who have made it their life's mission to awaken kids' excellence. Hiroshi and Erin will take your child on an empowering journey.
Experience. Reflect. Repeat. The adventure continues...
