Q: When should you arrive?
A: It would be best if you arrive at boot camp 30 – 45 minutes before your session is scheduled to start (There will be lots to do while you wait for camp to start), however you should absolutely be there no later than 15 minutes before start time. It may be busy at the registration desk and we want you to be able to get your dog tag, your shirt and any other items you may have ordered before camp starts.
Q: Where should I go, where is this camp?
A: The camp is located at SCERA Park in Orem at approximately 550 S. 400 E. in Orem. The registration booth is on the north side of the park and is shown on the attached map.
Q: Where should I park?
A: There are several places to park: Scera Park Elementary School 450 S. 400 E, the Church located at 600 S. 400 E., at Orem High School 200 S. 400 E. then walk or get on the shuttle bus, or you can find a place on one of the roads next to the park.
Q: Does it cost money to register?
A: The cost is FREE, but we recommend that you purchase a t-shirt uniform ($5.00) so the cadet has a cool shirt to wear after camp. We also are selling lots of other great items to help cadets and all visitors have a good experience. You will be able to purchase this at the Base Exchange / Post Exchange (aka Store) which is located in the registration tent.
Q: Can I pay early?
A: I will be calling all participants in the few days before camp to take payment before the event so you can register much quicker on the day of camp.
Q: Why don’t you have a really great registration process including online card processing?
A: This event is organized by a group of people who want to teach youth about freedom, and spend their own time and money to give this to the community. We are always hoping for and looking for people who want to help make it better. We wanted to make a fined tuned registration process but ran out of time for this year. If you want to volunteer to help us do this please let us know.
Q: Is this a safe activity?
A: There is risk in any activity including sitting on your couch or walking through the front door. This activity has more risk than either of those items, we believe similar to playing on a swing set in the park. You can fall off and break your arm or worse but most people do it safely. We will be asking the parents of all participants to sign a waiver just in case, but if we see anything unsafe we will immediately make changes to try and keep everyone safe. Participation is at your own risk.
Q: What are the risks?
A: Going across the rope bridge a cadet could take a spill, running through the tires one could trip, there could be a malfunction on the simulated fire machine gun, it will be hot and someone could get sick from the heat. There are likely other risks such as tripping or things that we have not foreseen that could cause injury. Parents are welcome to assist their children in being safe as they see fit so long as they are not making it less safe for other participants. Participation is at your own risk.
Q: Does Freedom Vehicles make a lot of money on this event?
A: Freedom Vehicles has not made any money on this event to date, but hopes that we can generate enough revenue this year and in the future to build an adventure park where people can come and learn about freedom, honor veterans, and learn about patriotism in the near future. We are looking for a major donor to help us with the land.
