Theme nights: 

Skit nights, counselor hunt, carnival night, special night nature hike, sports night, capture-the-flag, international folk dance, and campfire programs.

For end of the night activities, we rotate the boys and girls between campfire or pool party. One night, the boys will have a campfire and roast marshmallows, while the girls go to the pool, and the next night we will switch.

 

 

A Typical Day at Camp

Sunday night is activity sign up. Each camper selects a schedule of 6 daily activities based on individual preferences. If your child signed up for horseback riding, they will be assigned to a horseback class and will sign up for 5 other activities. Campers may or may not take the same activity as their cabin-mate or friend.

FACES Camp director Ashley Rhodes, born with Crouzon syndrome, is highly involved in hands-on leadership and supervision of all aspects of FACES Camp. She is excited to bring the camp experience to children with facial differences. Ashley says, “It’s important for kids to know that they can do almost anything they set their mind to, regardless of their facial difference.”

Accreditation by the American Camp Association (ACA) and two generations of family management/ownership (70+ years combined experience) gives campers and parents a highly supervised program.
