Join Us In Opting Outside

This year, we’re thrilled once again to join with REI, the outdoor equipment co-op, to encourage you to opt outside on Black Friday. REI gives its employees a paid day off instead of opening for the crush of people looking for deals the day after Thanksgiving and encourages other organizations to do the same. They also started the #OptOutside hashtag as a way for people to share what they’re doing in nature. We love the idea of #OptOutside because it matches so wonderfully with our Core Values, specifically that we want children to “experience the awe of nature.” We hope that you’ll join with us in spending time outside on Friday, November 29th. If you take pictures, you can share them on social media using the hashtag #OptOutside. We’d love it if you also tagged us (@goldarrowcamp) so that we can see what you’re doing outside. We’ll share our favorite GAC family #OptOutside pictures on our social media channels. If you’d like more information on the Opt Outside movement, visit REI’s Opt Outside website.

The GAC Runners had another successful year at the Manhattan Beach 10K!  Thank you to the campers, parents, staff, and alumni who represented GAC on the course and at the booth!  There were lots of smiles from a happy runners crew.  Congratulations to Monkey who placed in his age group.  Also at this event, the winner of a free week at camp was selected from the many names of campers whose parents completed their 2019 Parent Evaluation by September 10th!  And the winner is... Simone P.  Congratulations! We hope to see you at our next GAC Runners event!

Every Kid in a Park

Every Kid in a Park

Here at GAC, we love the outdoors and think it’s important to appreciate the beauty of nature and learn how to protect it for the future. The Every Kid in a Park initiative is a great way for 4th graders to learn more about their National Parks and Public Lands and visit them for FREE! Gold Arrow Camp is lucky to be located near three National Parks: Yosemite National Park, Kings Canyon National Park, and Sequoia National Park. As a 4th grade camper, we will supply the pass and you do the rest! Go to https://findyourpark.com/  to locate Public Lands in your area and go to https://everykidoutdoors.gov to learn more about this amazing initiative!
