To appreciate is to pay attention, and Appreciation at Flying Cloud is about helping our campers build their own attentiveness. Appreciation at FC is often focused on oneself, one’s community, or the world that we all live in, and for many it unlocks a newfound sense of gratitude.

For our campers, this can involve choosing to accept a physical challenge like Firequest or Earthwalk, or allowing themselves to be emotionally vulnerable by doing something like speaking up in front of the whole community.
