The action packed schedule.

“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 this comes as a GREAT relief to see such measures being taken. My daughter had so 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 2017 will kick off our 16th 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
