Camp Updates

It’s a Wrap! 2016

It’s time for us to wrap up yet another incredible year of ARROW-HEART Adventure Camps. I want to start by thanking my staff. Without them the camps wouldn’t run.It is the most incredible feeling to build something and have other people appreciate and believe in your work. This again is why I have to thank those so deeply who do the day to day work. Without you, we do not succeed.

Idaho AH will be going into its fourth year in 2017. The journey has been an valuable experience. We have campers who have graduated our program and those who have come back to try again. We challenge our campers to do their best. It is what drives our organization and is the heart of what we do.

Damia was a Jr. mentor this past year in Idaho and has shown unbelievable leadership skills and commitment to not only herself, but to AH and the new campers within our team. (You have to see her teaching The Major how to dance). Click Here!

Our Detroit Camp was a huge success in early winter and spring of 2016. The kids absolutely loved coach Jordan. Our Saturday roster was filled to the max. We are still looking to run our camp in Detroit in 2017. We are hoping to raise the funds we need to open our doors again.

We started our first 12 week session in spring/summer of 2016 in Los Angeles. Coach Shawn and myself ran this camp and it was amazing to be part of the transformation for these kids not to mention building relationships with their parents. Community is truly important in not just our adult lives, but for the memories we help build for our kids. We hope to launch again in Los Angeles, March 2017.

From all of us at AH we wish you a happy, healthy holiday season!

Los Angeles Stunts

On Saturday May 21st our LA camp got to experience and important day of “Communication”. Communication with their peers and building trust. We started out with a small “communication” exercise which ultimately led them to build a commit to themselves and leap to their highest bound.

*Thank you Terry James and your team for volunteering & making this an unbelievable day for our campers!*

Cheers to our teens who made it all the way through to earn their survival back packs early. Cheers to our teens who are continuing to work hard to receive them.

Here’s how you can continue to help our teens who work so hard to create an amazing path to their future.

Building Midvale Ropes Course

Steve Fenske, our program director has been working hard on our ropes course in Midvale, ID. Our teens will be working on survival skills and volunteering their time to help finish building their own ropes course April 17 and 18, 2015.

We had an audience during the development.


Did some major clearing around the campsite and created a fire pit and instructional area for our teens.

I want to express my thanks to Adam Clinton, one of my Reserve Police Officer and David Ott and his Grandfather for the use of the tractor and auger which dug the holes and helped to clear debris from the campsite.


This is just the beginning of the course.

On the Grand scheme of things….

Rock climbing small

Last month (February) our young teens all took their turns at conquering this rock wall. With the support of their peers this day turned out to be a huge success. Fear of heights was not an issue knowing teammates below were literally supporting them.
