At Friends Academy we strongly believe that each child carries unique gifts and talents which we seek to nurture and celebrate. The primary goal of our summer camp experience is to develop each child’s self-confidence, support them in learning new skills and of course, have fun! Friends Academy is a smart choice for families who care about the quality of their child's summer experience.
Our caring staff is comprised experienced educators/coaches and great role models. Our staff provides supervision and guidance throughout the day so that our campers can have fun and participate in exciting activities that provide multiple opportunities for them to learn, succeed, and feel good about themselves.
