Many of our top-notch facilities and campus services are available for camp directors to take advantage of in order to help create quality experiences for their campers. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is committed to providing quality service and assistance to all of our camp directors from the start of the camp planning process to the execution of each camp.
The sections below outline more of the details and things to consider for hosting a summer camp at Liberty University.
Liberty-Affiliated Groups include camps managed by our academic departments, Recreation Center, Club Sports, and NCAA coaches. Because these groups are directly associated with the University, they receive certain benefits in terms of pricing for hosting a camp at Liberty University. Liberty affiliated groups are not subject to any sort of rental fee for the use of on-campus facilities during their camps, including the LaHaye Rec and Fitness Center, and receive discounted pricing for both their on-campus housing and dining needs during the summer.
Non-Liberty Affiliated Groups consist of organizations with no affiliation to the University. These camps can have any number of focuses – academic, athletic, recreation, etc. – and come to Liberty with the intent of renting our various facilities and services to help facilitate their summer camps. Because these organizations have no direct association with the University, they are required to pay rental fees for the use of any of our on-campus facilities and are subject to standard pricing for any on-campus housing or dining needs during the summer.
Summer Camp Resources Available through Liberty University:
Groups hosting their camps at Liberty University may take advantage of a number of on-campus facilities and services to help create positive summer camp experiences. Below are more details on each of the resources that camp directors are able to request as part of their camp.
Overnight camps may utilize Liberty’s on-campus dorm facilities for any housing needs throughout the summer, at a better rate compared to other off-campus hotels or other housing accommodations. Liberty’s Residential Commons dorms offer hall-style housing, with each room including amenities such as an in-room bathroom, fridge, and microwave.
On-campus dining is available for camps to take advantage of upon request. The Reber-Thomas dining hall offers three meals a day for camps during the summer, and offers a number of different meal plans to fit the needs of each individual camp.
The LaHaye Recreation and Fitness Center provides camps with a first-class recreation experience while on campus. With facilities capable of supporting activities such as basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer, and an indoor rock wall, camps have a wide variety of options that they can take advantage of.
Along with the LaHaye Recreation and Fitness Center, many of Liberty’s other state-of-the-art facilities are available for use by summer camp customers upon request, including athletic venues, banquet spaces, conference rooms, etc. Availability of on-campus facilities are subject to the needs of other on-campus groups, and are made available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Camps hosted at Liberty University have access to Liberty Transit services to help navigate our growing campus. Multiple vehicle options are available based on the size of each camp and their requested transportation needs.
Liberty University’s National Recruitment team is involved in each camp held on our campus. Our recruiters will be present at every camp check in to provide more information on Liberty University, and offer camps the opportunity to participate in presentations and guided campus tours while on-campus.
Active Network is Liberty University’s official summer camps management software. Active Network allows camp directors to easily create custom camp websites and manage registrations, camper information, and camp finances, all in one location.
- Note: Active Network camp management software is required for all Liberty Affiliated camps. Non-Liberty Affiliated camps may use other software programs for their camp management.
Per Camper Fee:
All camps held at Liberty University are subject to an administrative fee of $3.50 per camper. This is a one-time fee that is associated with the cost of facilitating camps on Liberty’s campus throughout the summer. Camp directors may opt to offset this cost through their camp registration fees if desired.
