Recreation Center Bringing People Together

horsesCamp Friendship Outdoor Recreation Center provides opportunities for bringing people together at our location in Virginia. You and your family, and also local organizations can momentarily get away from your fast paced life and the daily routines. Camp Friendship Outdoor Recreation Center will be an ideal destination in Virginia this coming spring, with a calendar full of exciting programs and events. In total we will serve about 800 people during the months of March through May. We have two Girl Scout groups who will hold their encampments here with activities such as equestrian, campfire, archery, mountain boarding, ropes course, canoeing, and more. This spring, through Fluvanna County Parks and Recreation, we will offer lessons in canoeing and archery. These programs are a great way for adults and children to try something new.

To better serve our staff, our campers, and our Virginia community, Friendship Outdoor Recreation Center as well as Camp Friendship staff have recently received their Lifeguard Instructor Training Certification. Currently we’re fine tuning what key information our Camp Friendship staff need to be outstanding counselors. We will be highlighting some of our staff here, and in our newsletters in the upcoming months.

We couldn’t be more eager for this upcoming spring and summer and hope you feel the same way too! See what’s coming up! We look forward to having you join us for some good fun!

Be Yourself At Summer Camp

IMG_7724There are many things that kids gain by being at summer camp. There is the opportunity to try new things, the opportunity to meet new friends, and a chance to get away from the everyday world that they’re used to. At camp kids experience being in new surroundings. Campers learn soon enough, that it is a fresh opportunity to be yourself at summer camp.  Although there is still guidance, leaders and counselors helping them to a certain degree, you, the parent are not present. They have this chance to make decisions on a daily basis, and excersize all that you’ve taught them. On their own. Knowing it is a choice made through their careful consideration and not because you are there to approve or disapprove. Camp is a great opportunity for kids to be independent, build their confidence, and also understand who they are. At Camp Friendship summer camp in Virginia, we see even shy kids start the summer and by the time they leave, they not only have met and made new friends, but many times…learn to become their own best friend.
