Guam- Over 110 children of deployed soldiers and airmen of the Guam National Guard are participating in the 8th annual Camp Freedom.
The two week camp started today at Fort Juan Muna where young people between the ages of 5 to 17 interact and learn more about team building and leadership with outdoor and indoor activities. Captain Melvin Pilarca says the main objective of the camp is to support the children of those who are deployed. He mentions they will be teaching the children more about military history and conducting site visits to museums and memorials.

“The indoor activities are a lot of the arts and crafts...and then the outside is a lot of team building” said Pilarca. “We stress living a healthy, drug free lifestyle. So, we have a lot of fun games and team building events to build leadership and camaraderie.
The camp will be hosting a 2 day sleepover event at Polaris Point. Other fun events include a movie and ice cream day, as well as bowling and a roadside clean up along the Vietnam Veteran's Highway. The children are all Guard dependents.
