Summer at Friends has been creating summer memories since the 1960’s. A hidden gem located right on Charles Street between Northern Parkway and Wyndhurst Avenue, Summer at Friends takes advantage of Friends School’s 35 acre campus. Here campers as young as four and as old as thirteen enjoy thoughtfully crafted activities such as science, technology, art, music, and swimming, in the comfort of a facility designed just for them! It’s a place for campers to be kids, form friendships, and discover the joy of creating lasting memories of summer fun, in a peaceful, safe, and supportive environment.
The turf field and gymnasiums at Friends School are waiting for young, eager athletes of all ability levels to enjoy a full day of skill building, instructional sports, and teamwork. Every day at Sports Camp, there are new skills to be learned and new friends to be made. With a counselor staff of experienced athletes, campers are not only guaranteed a day full of sports and play, but also a day of fun.
