Friendship Camp is a residential camp for children who are ready to experience four days and three nights of fun filled adventure! This child-centered camp is designed for the active learning of young children. Campers will enjoy a number of exciting nature based activities as well as a learn-to-swim program, arts and crafts, skits, boating safety and crabbing and fishing. This camp will provide each child with the opportunity to interact with other children under the guidance of a caring and trained staff.

Who Can Participate?
All Outdoor Education camps are open to any student who has an interest in the environment, making new friends, adventure, and personal growth.

Heather McCarthy, Arlington Echo Outdoor Educator, will direct the camp.
