"By far the best decision we have made about her treatment for selective mutism, is to take our daughter to freedom camp. She is like a new person. We highly recommend this camp." -2018 Parent


Dear Community

Given the coronavirus pandemic and the public health recommendations, we are sad to share that we are not currently able to offer camp. We will continue to monitor the situation and evaluate when it will be safe for camp in the future. In the meantime, we are fortunate that Psychologist and expert in Selective Mutism, Catherine Eckel, PhD is offering virtual groups.  Contact information is listed below.

Classroom Activities & Fieldtrips at

Double Tree by Hilton - Pruneyard, Campbell, California


This camp is designed for elementary school age children with selective mutism and may be appropriate for some middle school age children. It is a wonderful opportunity for children with selective mutism to become more comfortable and increase verbalizations with peers and adults in a supportive setting. All Freedom Camp Counselors will be specifically trained in selective mutism treatment techniques. These fun-filled days will provide campers with opportunities to practice using their brave voices in individual, small group, and whole group settings. The camp will be led by Catherine Eckel, Ph.D. and Dr.Agredano, both of whom specialize in the treatment of selective mutism.
