Camp Friendship is the perfect summer sleepaway camp near Washington DC!
Camp Friendship is a coed sleepaway camp nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains on 520 acres of rolling hills and scenic woods in central Virginia. Since 1966 Camp Friendship offers boys and girls, ages 7-16, an opportunity to experience the best summer possible. We not only have campers coming to summer camp from Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland, but we also have International Campers. This gives campers an opportunity to make friends with a diverse group of children, and also learn about other cultures.
Our Palmyra, Virginia summer camp facility features an 80-horse equestrian center, lake for fishing, canoeing, and kayaking, swimming pools, tennis courts, gymnastics center, rifflery and archery ranges, sports fields, a low and high ropes course, drama and arts studios and 2 1/2 miles of river frontage on the Rivanna River for tubing and canoeing. For more information visit our Summer Camp Facility Page, and Summer Camp Activity Page!
Increased self-esteem, making new friendships and gaining social competence, learning to work as part of a team, responsibility and building positive values are just some of the life skills gained from participating in Camp Friendship programs….and it’s fun!
Camp Friendship is accredited by the American Camp Association.
