History of Camp Freedom

​​

My son and I spent the summer volunteering at a pilot program teaching high functioning autistic youth how to sail. After we knew that there was a need to start a program that could help youth like my son. My son was twelve years old when sailing came into his life. He has had difficulties with self-esteem and social skills. My son explained that sailing made him feel "FREE" and "ME". That was all I needed to hear, and decided to make these programs a reality. 

During the pilot program we developed an adaptive sailing program for high functioning autistic youth that has been recognized by US Sailing. The program we developed not only teaches high functioning autistic youth how to sail, but also provides social skills development.

This is a year round program that will provide family activity and support. We will be taking our youth to different sailing areas to expose them to the community and give them a chance to use and practice their social skills.



Due to the Covid-19 and the distancing laws in place by the government. Freedom Sailing will be cancelling our Volunteering event and our come out and Meet us events at Philippe Park on May 16th and 23rd. 

Freedom appreciates our volunteers but FSC must go by government Covid-19 laws. We will still need volunteers so please contact Freedomsailingcamp@gmail.com to sign up. Then we can forward what days you will be able to volunteer with our program. 

Freedom will be sailing with only four individual students each day. Look at our booking system on our Facebook site for days we will be sailing each week. We will only be working with groups of four individuals and individuals one on one sailing lessons. Right now, Freedom will only be sailing on weekdays. Freedom has found that weekend sailing is not safe for our group because of the crowded beach area.
