As far back as the 1960’s, Summer at Friends has been offering camp experiences for young campers. Here four and five year old campers enjoy thoughtfully planned activities – such as music, art, and swimming – in the comfort of a facility designed just for them! Housed in Friends’ Pre-Primary Building, campers have exclusive access to the shaded playground and are a short walk away from the swimming pools. It’s a place for campers to be kids, form friendships, and discover the joy of learning and playing in a safe, supportive, environment.
Junior Camp is a full day program loaded with excitement and fun that won’t disappoint. Within their groups, campers explore our weekly themes, spending time in the classroom and outside exploring Friends School of Baltimore’s gorgeous campus. Daily art classes spark creativity, with projects ranging from crafting puppets and masks to creating postcards and paintings. Then there is music, where the focus is on fun, as campers learn new songs, movement routines, and experiment with rhythm instruments. Junior Campers also enjoy “Jump Bunch”, and parents will appreciate that lunch and snack are included!
KinderCamp, a half day program, is another great way to spend the summer. Each morning is full of fun and campers enjoy many of the same activities as Junior camp – such as art, music, and swimming – in half the time!
It gets hot in the summer, but campers have a great opportunity to cool off with daily swimming in our outdoor swimming pools!! Both camps feature Red Cross Learn-To Swim instruction designed to build and improve water skills and promote water safety – all while having fun!
Summer will be here before you know it — Camp starts on June 18 and runs through August 10.
