Traditionally Blaze Girls Camp and Velocity Boys Camp were conducted during separate weeks of the summer. For summer 2014, we made a strategic decision to conduct both camps simultaneously and offer two sessions of children's camps. Our goal was to make summer scheduling easier for parents and churches. Each week we conducted Blaze and Velocity separately- the only common elements being meals and worship. Simultaneous camps were successful! We received positive feedback from families, churches, and Friendship Camps staff. We are excited to continue offering simultaneous Girls and Boys Camp! Parents can choose to send all their 2nd - 6th-grade children to camp during the same week.
2022 UPDATE: Due to Covid issues we have returned to the traditional format of separate Boys and Girls camps. We hope that by doing this we will be able to actually serve more children this summer by utilizing our facilities for the greatest capacity and still maintain safe distancing in our cabins. We plan to return to simultaneous camps in the future.
For summer 2022, we will offer an optional extended session. Parents can choose to pick-up their day camper from 11:45 - 12:00 pm, or choose a longer day camp experience and pick-up their child from 3:45 - 4:00.
