Through our innovative Freedom of Choice elective program, Liberty Lake campers experience the ultimate in enrichment activities all summer long, one week at a time. As kids “age up” across our divisions, they gain more responsibility for creating their own schedule. Campers only participate in the activities they want to do. They are eager to participate in their selected electives—no “Jedi mind trick” required (because these ARE the activities the kids are looking for…)!
Additionally, Liberty Lake is the only summer camp with a fully co-ed activity program. While campers’ bunks are single sex, boys sign up for Dance, and girls sign up for Outdoor Laser Tag. No other camp can make this “equal opportunity” claim.
Generating a weekly activity schedule is as easy as logging into our CampMinder online database (with your child nearby) to establish and update his/her Top Ten Elective Preferences list. The older our Liberty Lake campers become, the more choices available to them when customizing their elective periods. Because our programming targets individual campers’ interests, we don’t bore kids with what we consider “lowest common denominator” programming (not too easy, but not too challenging either).
If your child wants something more than typical summer sports, arts & crafts and swim time, may we suggest Fencing, Beekeeping, our very own Camp of Rock (which now includes a Rap elective), or Fishing? Our team members enjoy teaching because they don’t have to manage or babysit campers. The kids are psyched to learn new skills—they want to be included in the particular activity. Freedom of Choice creates an educational dynamic unique to Liberty Lake Day Camp. The secret behind our diverse programming: We hire professionals to run these electives, not amateur hobbyists.
Liberty Lake employs highly qualified sports coaches; art, music, and drama teachers; and other specialty instructors from the South and Central Jersey region. Instead of cobbling together a crazy-quilt schedule of à la carte specialty camps for each of your children (sports, theater, art, technology & science, etc.), diverse interests can be fulfilled at one camp. Our enrichment-style programming provides a stable summer experience for campers. No ridiculous carpool/driving schedules (we do the driving), no skipped lunches (we do the cooking) and, once that first one-week specialty camp ends, no starting anew the next week.
Our range of programming creates byproducts we know parents consider just as important as activity choices: opportunities to gain life skills and build character. Liberty Lake Day Camp transforms into a vibrant community during the summer. We oversee a 60-acre village that creates bonds between campers within their age divisions and fosters leadership. All the while, we immerse children as diverse as our programming into a 99% outdoors experience. It’s the remedy to modern society’s challenges, counterbalancing a (sometimes misguided) high-tech environment and the ongoing pressures of school-year obligations. And, oh yes—it’s fun!
