Philosophy

Campers at Camp Fish Tales will empower each other to achieve the highest level of self-esteem. Through encouragement, we will continue to grow in mind, body and spirit. We will recognize and meet each others’ needs. We will carry this team spirit into our homes, our communities and preserve it for posterity.

Camp Goals

The goal of Camp Fish Tales is to promote an atmosphere for physically and cognitively-challenged individuals to meet and make new friends while participating in activities designed to promote growth. In many cases, campers will learn to deal with their own emotional and physical limitations during their time at camp. Camp Fish Tales will provide campers with the opportunity to be away from home and provide respite for caregivers. Campers will become more attuned to the needs of others within their units. Campers are encouraged to participate in as many activities as possible.
