OUR MISSION


Go back to the basics. Build practical life skills. Gain confidence to reach new heights in a caring community. Leave technology behind!

These are our values and we live them every day. Through clear expectations around respect and responsibility, we create a safe and inviting community where everyone feels comfortable expressing their true selves and learning together.

Fly Your Kite cares about diversity and inclusion. We fully sponsor 10% of campers, so campers from all backgrounds can forge life-changing memories and friendships.

OUR PHILOSOPHY


Do you remember the simple joy of flying a kite?

Children learn best through first-hand experiences, and there’s no better place to have those experiences than outdoors, surrounded by natural beauty.

At Fly Your Kite, our campers, called “Flyers,” continuously develop practical life skills that THEY CHOOSE through patient, self-guided growth.

Represented by the four quadrants of a kite, our values focus on Practical Skill Development, Supportive Community, Freedom of Choice, and Tangible Achievements. 


ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS


OUR APPROACH


We teach Flyers a range of practical life skills, from basic to complex. Flyers graduate from Level to Level, but they never stop learning.

As Flyers challenge themselves and achieve new milestones, they move into leadership roles and become role-models for their peers.

Our program sessions range from three days to two weeks and take place year-round (holiday weekends, school breaks, and summers). This allows Flyers to reconnect with friends and keep growing their skillset.
