Cold, snow, and ice have been the talk of the town this week. Amid the school closings and delays, it can be hard to think about what your child will be doing when school lets out in June. Summer at Friends has been the camp for Baltimore children for more than half a century; and with co-ed programs for campers ages 4 to 13, there’s something for everyone. All Summer at Friends programs include a blend of indoor and outdoor activities, with a well-rounded schedule that keeps campers excited and engaged. Friends’ 35 acre campus houses everything campers need, so there’s no need to travel!

From harvesting crops for the hungry at First Fruits Farm and reading to children at Govans Elementary School, to protecting trails from invasive species at Irvine Nature Center, the Friends students rolled up their sleeves and immersed themselves in the work and camaraderie of the day.
