“Friends Camp helped me realize at an early age that being different is beautiful” – Nina
From a camper who did not want to come to camp “I’m having so much fun, I’ll probably leave out the best parts” – Max
“I am grateful for a wonderful camp where my daughter gets to live Quaker values every day” – Parent
“Our son was very resistant, did not want to go to camp and once we got there, he did not want to stay after we left. We were worried that he would be miserable. We were extremely happy to hear that camp was fun (except for the island trip) and that he definitely wants to return next year. He made lots of new friends and he enjoyed learning about silk screening.” – A Camper Mom
“Every year for seven years our daughter has cried when camp ended. The inner peace, special friends, and enlarged sense of self, all supported by gentle Quaker wisdom have demonstrated the rich experience she has received at Friends Camp.” – Parent
“She returned home relaxed and thoughtful, already talking about returning to camp next summer” – Parent
“We would like to thank you for providing such a positive and enriching camp experience. Our daughter had a fantastic time! But more than that, she came away feeling more confident in herself and proud of her accomplishments. She believed that people “accepted me the way I am”. What a major feat for a girl that has always struggled mightily in social situations! Because she felt successful and supported, we plan to send her back next year and hopefully, one of her siblings as well. Thanks again for your efforts and hard work.” – Parent
