Well organized, with a fantastic selection of great activities to fill our child’s summer days.

“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 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

Shakespeare and Games: From Stage Combat to Motion Capture (Ages 9-15) Week 2 Full Day 9:00 am – 5:00 pm This course blends past and future: the historical art of swordplay with cutting edge motion capture technology! Students will begin by safely delving into the art and technique of swordplay – one of the most sophisticated kinetic systems of human movement.  Whether they re-enact a sword fight from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, or a lightsaber duel from Star Wars, students will learn safe swordplay techniques, as well as the dramatic and technical tools to perform and tell stories of conflict and resolution.

$625

Students will use their newfound knowledge of swordplay and theatrical performance to develop their own characters, conflicts, and choreographed swordplay sequences and create a unique story that will be digitized using motion capture suits and cameras. Students will learn hands-on how a physical performance is converted into digital magic that can be used in creating movies and games. At the end of the class, each student will have a digital copy of their motion capture experience within an authentic virtual 16th century stage. Students are separated based on age and ability, so each student can work with their peers and be challenged. This course was created by Brad Waller and his team, who are currently working with MGTA teachers at the Virginia Serious Game Institute (VSGI) in collaboration with the Historical Movement Archive project.  Brad Waller is a Visiting Scholar in Residence, working with the VSGI to establish a research program and library in cooperation with George Mason University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, College of Health and Human Services, and the Center for History and New Media, where the body of digitized movement knowledge will be preserved.
