“Of all the summer camps we have attended over the years, this is by far the best experience we’ve had! We love the coach’s enthusiasm and interaction with the children and the level of security you have in place to ensure our children’s safety! We’ve had other incidents were children ran wild within the facility with little to no supervision, so U this comes as a GREAT measures being taken. My daughter had so U.ED Msuch PS@toGsee AMrelief C C F much fun and it was a direct reflection of the fun the coaches allowed the kids to have.”

Who We Are!

The Freedom Summer Camp Crew “Unity is strength…When there is team work and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved,” Mattie Stepanek The Freedom Staff Family is more than a seasonal summer crew. The unique aspect of our staff is what makes our camp an experience for all campers throughout the summer. Each counselor is strategically hired then scheduled with the appropriate group to ensure his/her strengths are being put to work. Our staff and our program is one of a kind and will ensure a summer your camper will never forget. Our staff is committed to providing your camper a safe environment, caring and experienced camp counselors, and fun-filled dynamic days. The summer of 2018 will kick off our 17th summer camp season! We hire those with a passion to PLAY! Each counselor on FAFC’s summer camp staff is a well-trained, enthusiastic and motivating individual over the age of 18. Several summer counselors have been with us for one or more seasons and may have even been a previous camper! Each staff member has been screened through an interview process, received back ground checks and references verified to ensure the safety of your camper. Camp counselors are required to attend an orientation and training prior to the first day of camp. Throughout the training, counselors participate in child development workshops, team building activities, earn a certification in First Aid, CPR and Blood Borne Pathogen and several other exciting and beneficial activities to ensure a successful and safe camp season. Training also offers counselors time to plan programs, work to build a positive group atmosphere and requires staff to embark on finding solutions to challenging situations that may occur throughout the summer and preventative tools to work towards an anti-bullying environment.

“I loved the aspect of team bonding and collaboration with your co-workers. Most companies might not make it an emphasis to promote co-worker relationships but getting along with and working well with your co-workers is an important aspect of any job but especially in this setting. The two weeks of training gave us a great opportunity to do that and I ran into virtually no conflict with other employees,” Freedom Center Camp Counselor

Week 3 Full Day 9:00 am – 5:00 pm $595 This popular course is an excellent introduction to programming for students of all ages. Python is an excellent first programming language because students can quickly learn how to think like a programmer. Python is easily readable – students won’t need to memorize the complex syntax that other programming languages require. Instead, students will be able to focus on learning programming concepts and paradigms. This course incorporates fun, visual features to teach Python. While learning to code in Python, students will be able to observe their code in illustrative patterns and designs. This is a fun way to integrate art/design, computer science, and geometry all tied into one course! For more advanced students, this course will also allow them to delve deeper into Python programming, and learn to program simple, textual and graphical based computer games.

Vivecraft is a mod that turns Minecraft into a full-featured VR room-scale experience that offers… • Walk around your room as you mine and build. Blocks in Minecraft are 1 meter in size. You’ll be amazed how big they really are! • World scaling: Scale your size in the world up or down. Play as an ant or a giant! • Break blocks and fight by really swinging your hands! • Shoot your bow realistically by drawing and aiming two-handed! • Pet animals, feed horses, fill buckets in room scale Beginners will learn to create mods immediately, and share them with friends, by learning a fun and engaging program used to make modding Minecraft as simple and elegant as possible. Intermediate students will focus on learning good coding habits in a Java environment, and learn to comment, use Java libraries, and integrate their modding ideas into a final design and creation of their own, unique, customized Mod for Minecraft. Topics covered include the creation of modding blocks, materials, items (including armor), tools, mobs/monsters, environment settings, and recipes. The instructor will walk them through step-by-step how to code each of these modifications. They will use the Java IDE Eclipse, a tool used by many in the software industry and modding community, to create their mods. Students will be able to create, test, and export their mods. Advanced students will be able to take their modding with Java to new levels. With a focus developing core Java fundamentals and the ability to delve into built-in libraries, students will learn the skills necessary to create their own advanced features to the game of Minecraft. While our Beginner and Intermediate levels emphasize an understanding of existing blocks, entities, and items, the advanced class challenges students to bring brand new creations from their minds into the game using Java techniques, with the help and close guidance of our instructors.
