This month, Middle Schoolers of the Friends School of Baltimore fanned out across the city and surrounding areas for Quaker Community Day, a time when students and teachers put aside their planners and laptops to engage in hands-on service and environmental stewardship. 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.
Friends School of Baltimore is pleased to announce that, effective July 1, 2018, the school will power its electricity using 100% solar and wind energy.

Do you know a child who loves art? What about dance, drama (the good kind!) or music? Summer at Friends is the place for budding artists, aspiring musicians, young actors, and dancers to spend their summer. Summer at Friends’ Fine Arts camps offer the perfect blend of art and summer camp (think fun games and activities, swimming, lunch, and more!) This year Summer at Friends is offering several new Fine Arts Camps. And don’t worry – you won’t have to pick just one!
Visual Arts Camp (June 18 – July 13) explores the works of artists around the world while drawing, painting, and sculpting a variety of animals and plants! Campers can attend one or more weeks. This new camp is selling out fast – less than 10 spaces remain!
Dance Camp (July 30 – August 10) is a two week coed camp focused on developing and strengthening fundamental techniques for beginners and seasoned performers alike! Dance campers will be featured performers in our closing ceremony.
Dance and Film (June 18 – 29) using the Friends School campus as a stage, campers will choreograph and film dynamic routines using the pool, dining hall, and other spaces as beautiful backdrops.
For campers who want to rock, there’s Rock with Friends (July 9 – 20). Come join the band and learn how to jam on guitar, bass, drums, keys, or vocals!
Young performers will feel right at home in Imagination Alive (June 18 – July 13) as they work through the process of staging a production; while older performers looking to hone their skills will love TAKE TWO! (July 16 – 27). Did we mention that all of these performances take place in the beautifully renovated Forbush Auditorium?
