We want to make the camp experience as easy and enjoyable as possible — check out some of our most Frequently Asked Questions!

Q: What is the cost for campers to attend camp?

A: FHFTC camps are free! Thanks to many generous donors, each teen’s camp experience is covered.

Q: Do the campers need to be in foster care?

A: FHFTC requires that each camper is currently in foster care OR has been in foster care in the past.

Q: Where can I get an application?

A: We make it easy! You can download either one by clicking on the following links: The Great Adventure Camp Application (ages 12-15) or CrossRoads Application (ages 16-18).

Q: What do the teens do at camp?

A: Camp is all about experience, and we have a lot of fun doing it. We empower teens through specially-designed programming focused on building trust, gaining confidence and learning how to navigate complex, uncertain situations. Campers also enjoy classic camp activities including crafts, archery, water activities, s’mores around the campfire and so much more!

Our Challenge Course offers a unique experience as well, giving each teen a chance to overcome obstacles and share their stories. The Challenge Course is NOT about strength and agility; it’s about trust and teamwork. Our camp highly revolves around what the Challenge Course can do for each foster teen that comes to camp, and helps them express themselves in a way they may never have before.

Q: Do you have Medical staff available?

A: We do have medical staff and a camp therapist at every camp we offer on-site. Our ultimate goal is to ensure all campers safety at camp.
