During the summer months, the Educational Arts Team operates Camp Liberty, an eight-week camp that offers urban youth high-quality artistic, recreational and social experiences in a beautiful outdoor setting. Camp Liberty was founded in 1974 as a safe and tranquil space where children ages 6 to 15 can learn, grow and create.
Our 5 acres of land are located in Liberty State Park and include an in-ground swimming pool, a playground and spaces for art, music, softball, handball, and theater.
Throughout the camp day, children have the Freedom to Choose and so make numerous decisions from a diverse array of choices. Camp activities include theater, arts & crafts, sports (basketball, soccer, handball, softball), dance, music, vaudeville, magic, puppetry, gardening and swimming.
Many of our well-trained staff have been working at the camp for a number of years, many of them Camp Liberty alumni!
