S.A.F.E. Fredonia

Welcome to Fredonia

The mythical country of Fredonia has been hit with a disaster and your team must complete training exercises, simulating what ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) members experience when providing emergency shelter.


Fredonia is planned for Spring of 2024.

The cost to attend S.A.F.E. is $50 plus your plane ticket to and from Austin, Texas (AUS).

Payment may be made via credit/debit card on the registration form below. If paying via mailed check or in-person on the day of the event, simply check ‘Bill Me Later’ on the form.

ShelterBox offers two scholarships to S.A.F.E. Fredonia to cover travel costs. To apply for a scholarship, leave an explanation in the scholarship field of the registration form.

Transport to and from the Austin airport is generously provided by The Rotary Club of Lakeway/Lake Travis. All Ambassadors will sleep in tents in teams of four individuals of mixed genders. The training includes role play as well as moderate physical activity lasting up to 4-hours.

Alumni are always welcome to return as role players.
($50 payment does not apply).



We recommend scheduling your incoming flight to arrive in Austin, Texas prior to 1300 (1:00 pm) on Friday and a departing return flight leaving any time after 1530 (3:30 pm) on Sunday.
