Camp Friendship was founded as a 501(c)(3) non-profit youth organization in 1973. Camp Friendship provides quality and affordable, after-school, homework help, mentoring, seasonal sports, youth employment and summer programming for youth between the ages of 5 and 18. Camp Friendship programs build self-esteem; promote physical fitness and academic achievement. Our youth gain personal accountability with a competitive spirit and learn good sportsmanship through year-round programming. Camp Friendship programs are designed to develop a consistent and long-term relationship with each youth to achieve maximum individual character. Camp Friendship hosts community events throughout the year and all of our youth take part in various service learning projects.
