Camp friendship - poor teenage supervision, Jan 02, 2007
reviewer: Nancy Massey from Hernando, MS
We were excited to try Camp Frienship for our 13 yr. old daughter, as we wanted her to gain confidence through challenging and fun activities. After one week of traditional camp, she set out on a week's adventure of rafting, biking and horsebackriding. We were surprised to learn that 13 yr olds and 16 yr olds were rooming together at the first week's traditional camp, as the difference between 7th grade and high school is enormous! It was also very disturbing to learn that there were sexual antics occurring, more reminiscent of fraternity pranks than a kids' camp. The most disturbing lapse in supervision occurred when the 2nd week off-site was conducted, as the two (male and female) counselors were romantically involved and not focused on the campers, displaying unacceptable personal behaviour and not being focused on providing a safe environment for the campers. Most appalling was the lack of concern by the camp director, who ultimately did not respond to these very distressing events.

Our son enjoyed it, Dec 18, 2006
reviewer: Chris from Richmond, VA
We sent our 12 (and 11 before) year old son to Freindship the past two summers. The location is great and there is a wide range of activities to keep them entertained and happy. We would likely send him back, but it has gotten pretty expensive, and he has outgrow the junior program. Overall I would rate it better than a couple of the other summer camps we're aware of. It's a well run camp and the directors are excellent.
