Fleur de Lis Camp promotes the well being of girls and young women socially, educationally and physically. We provide opportunities and experiences to help them become self-sufficient and productive members of their community and the world.
Fleur de Lis Camp program is conducted in a natural environment, both safe and nurturing, with the intention of fostering leadership skills, citizenship, and self-confidence, while helping each girl reach her full potential. The girls and young women of Fleur de Lis are developed in a spirit of cooperation and respect with a focus on friendship, mentoring, positive example, and challenges appropriate to the individual girl.
Fleur de Lis affirms its responsibility and obligation as a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization serving the welfare of girls and young women. In this spirit we strive to make our program affordable to all.
Integrity–Fleur de Lis Camp helps its girls and young woman become people who know what is right, fair, and honest. They are individuals who are able to remain true to their beliefs and personal vision. They become good citizens.
Loyalty – Fleur de Lis Camp believes that dependability and loyalty are traits that help individuals and communities thrive and prosper. We encourage, model and support true and lasting friendships among our girls.
Service to Others – Fleur de Lis Camp believes that an integral part of creating a healthy, vibrant community is the willingness and ability to serve and care for others. We expect our girls and young woman to give to each other when there is a need and give back to their community allowing these communities to remain strong for succeeding generations.
Caring Community - Fleur de Lis Camp is an environment where each member demonstrates respect for others, the community and the world. As members of a community we work and play together in an atmosphere of encouragement, trust and friendship. Each of us looks out for the welfare of the individual and the group.
Safety in All Things– Fleur de Lis Camp expects all its members to grow and flourish in an environment that is safe and secure. Safety allows each individual to grow, learn and achieve their personal best whether it’s in a formal class setting developing new skills or during those times when close friends talk and reflect.
Mature, Professional Staff – Fleur de Lis Camp staff is responsible for ensuring we achieve our mission and that we instill our values in the girls and young women we serve. Our staff is highly trained in various areas of expertise (e.g., outdoor activities, athletics, child development, leadership) and hired for their experience and skills. They are able to deliver a program that is structured yet flexible enough to meet the needs of all our girls.
Financial Security – Fleur de Lis Camp believes that its lasting strength lies in its values and beliefs but also in its financial stability. Not only does this allow us to provide a learning environment that is rich and growing, but it also allows us to provide these experiences to girls who are deserving but might not otherwise have the means. Financial security means that our traditions and our impact on girls, young women, and society in general will last into perpetuity.
Fleur de Lis Camp program instills the Core Values in its campers through various programs and projects that have as its central purpose the advancement of the social, educational and physical well-being of girls and young women so that they may become self-sufficient and productive members of their community and world. The Camp's program is detailed on this website and in its brochure.
