Skit nights, counselor hunt, carnival night, special night nature hike, sports night, capture-the-flag, international-folk-dance, camp-fire programs, and related types of activities.
At the end of the night activities, we rotate the boys and girls between having a 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 5 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 4 other activities. Campers may or may not take the same activity as their cabin-mate/friend.

FACES Camp director, Ashley Rhodes, who was born with Crouzon Syndrome, is extremely involved in hands-on leadership and supervision of all aspects of the FACES Camp. She is excited to bring the camp experience to children with 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.
