WHY CHOOSE US

Why Us? 

Sparked by the little adventures childhood brings, Camp Friendship sets the benchmark for an exceptional summer experience with tried and true methods stemming from 50 years of experience. 

We believe that it takes a village to raise a child. That’s why we are eager to be active partners in your child’s journey of wonder and self-discovery.

At Camp Friendship, our family of staff set us apart. We value your trust and work hard to earn it. That’s why we go through a selective hiring process and training program to prepare for the summer. Our counselors become your camper’s 24/7 support system. They are your camper’s loudest cheerleaders as they try a new challenge on our ropes course or show off a talent at campfire. They’re also there for quiet moments, guiding your child through daily reflection and problem solving. Our caring staff help to turn all the big and small moments into lifelong memories. 

Experience: 

Camp Friendship has over 50 years of experience working with children and their families. Child development, meaningful social interactions, quality programming, and safety protocols are skills we have mastered over these years. We take pride in being an American Camp Association accredited camp and are active leaders in the camping industry. We never settle and always strive to create the best environment possible for each and every child. Our campers come first every time.

Growth: 

Many campers grow with us and return year after year to reunite with friends and try new things. In all of our activities and interactions, Camp Friendship focuses on supporting and encouraging each child’s development. A child-centered philosophy is combined with high-caliber programming to make summer camp an experience like no other. 

We believe in inspiring wonder and empowering children with the opportunity to make their own choices in a safe and supportive environment. Campers make choices on a daily basis and achieve great independence from doing so. With over 35 fun activities to choose from, we encourage exploration and offer a wide range of possibilities for rich and meaningful experiences.

Connection: 

At Camp Friendship everything goes back to a simpler time, which is particularly powerful with today’s plugged-in world. Here the laughter of children, campfires, and the flash of fireflies replace electronics. By unplugging, our campers make a great connection and experience what it’s like to be fully together and focus on what’s important – each other.

Diversity: 

Camp Friendship is a place to be you! Welcoming campers and staff from all over the world, we provide the opportunity for them to learn about cultures and traditions different from their own. Diverse by design, we offer a vibrant and accepting environment that recognizes and nurtures each child’s unique gifts. Campers have the freedom to express their individuality and to celebrate differences outside their typical social scenery.
