Liberty Lake Day Camp’s Freshman Division is for children entering 1st and 2nd grade. These still-young campers get to directly experience the responsibility of making their own choices through the Freedom of Choice elective system. This innovative program offers over 60 diverse elective activities. Freshmen campers participate in THREE elective periods each day, based on the Top 10 list of preferred choices they submit online (with a little bit of help from you).
Please don’t assume this means anarchy rules supreme for our Freshmen campers! Liberty Lake’s divisions run autonomously—they don’t mix during activities. Your child will play, swim, and eat with the other six- and seven-year-olds.
While the kids in our Freshman Division are near the beginning of what we consider their aspirational arc, we still do plenty of hand-holding for this age group. Although we give them some control over the activities they do (based on personal interests), they will receive the nurturing experience they still need from our adult Group Leaders and dedicated Counselors.
We challenge you to find another day camp that offers this age group the opportunity to choose what they want to do each day during the summer. Being in the Freshman Division at Liberty Lake is just like that first taste of freedom away from home, only safer (and no schoolwork to worry about)!
