“My daughter had the most amazing time at camp this year!! Every time I got a letter from her she was saying how she was having the best time!! I was so happy she was able to have a carefree summer at camp. Gold Arrow is truly a special place and the time my kids have spent at Gold Arrow camp has truly influenced them in such positive ways!!! Sending my kids to Gold Arrow camp is one of the best parenting decisions I ever made!! I will be forever grateful for the wonderful, carefree summers they got to spend at Gold Arrow Camp!!! Thank you so much!!!!.”

“My son came back with the best attitude – he seems kinder, more focused, and happier than I’ve seen him in a long time. I’m positive he will remember his first year for the rest of his life. Especially post pandemic – it’s so nice to hear him talk about all the good times he had and all the new things he tried. We are GAC for life!”

“I felt my daughter was ready for a sleep-away camp experience, and I wanted to stretch her a bit before entering first grade at a new school. She is a confident girl, but can be hesitant in new situations. My goal was for her to practice making new friends and trying new things. I was overwhelmed by the pictures we saw and the stories we heard of her growth. She jumped right in – exceeding at most activities and failing at some (which is good!) – and came away truly a happier and more confident and independent young girl. We are so grateful for this experience for her!”

“Both boys came home dirty, tired, and filled with stories. We could tell they grew and became more confident and happy after 2 weeks with you! Thank you!”

“My daughter came home from GAC confident, happy, and super excited. She met so many new friends and has grown so much over the a two week period. The first thing she said when she got off the bus was “Can I return to camp next summer?” Thank you GAC for making her experience so memorable!”

“All I can say is wow. My son enjoyed all the different activities and was so excited to tell me all about it when he got home. He made new friends and tried new things. The counselors are so professional and really make sure the kids are well rested and take care of.”

“My children both had the most amazing summer and have a serious case of the I miss GAC blues. They both expressed that they feel that GAC is where they really feel they can be themselves. They all made friends and amazing memories.”

“This was my son’s first year at GAC. He had a blast, made news friends and had so many fun experiences. He is excited to return next year with his younger sister. GAC ensured his first year at camp was a total success. This experience provided a real opportunity for growth for both our child and our family.”

“She’s not the same kid we sent to camp. She seem more mature, positive and confident. She’s already planning next summer at camp with friends she made this year. Overall, it was a life changing 2 weeks.”
