Camp Philosophy

Our program is inclusive and celebrates each individual member of our camp community.

~to teach children respect for the earth, each other, and all living things
~to give young people the respect they deserve to become responsible adults
~to create a caring and unique environment
~to help children find a sense of place, and discover a sense of wonder
~to treasure and honor traditional people and cultures
~to invent new ways of coping with old problems (teaching)
~to explore and cherish the notion of interdependence
~to provide safe, supervised, outdoor space for childhood exploration
We are committed to creating a caring, vibrant, diverse, unforgettable camp experience for each child who is part of the camp community.
Our staff members are trained to encourage campers to try new things, in an atmosphere of support.  At Free Spirit we expect kids to fail sometimes, and that’s okay!  In a strong community of mutual respect campers can grow beyond their limits and become stronger and more grounded individuals.
