What Our Camp Families Say
“We live in New York City, and this was such an amazing traditional summer camp experience for our 10-year-old son. He loved his cabin and counselors, his favorite activities were horseback riding, riflery and canoeing, and the first thing he said when I picked him up was, “I’m definitely coming back next year!””
Cynthia S. -Brooklyn, NY
“This was our son's first year at FPC and to say he fell in love with the camp experience is an understatement. From the second he got home all he could talk about was going back next summer. The freedom, independence, and confidence FPC gives kids cannot be overstated. He learned so much about animals, nature, and himself. If you are wondering if the cost is worth it - the answer is absolutely yes! If you question whether your child is ready for a week (or two) away from home - again, the answer is yes! You'll be amazed at the confident, happy child that returns home to you.”
Katie A. -Sahuarita, AZ
“Best camp in Arizona. Staff has been awesome every year my kids have gone. My son went for 5 years and my daughter just went for her 5th year. She's already talking about going back next summer. The kids have plenty of options for activities. This past summer my daughter got sick while she was at camp and the staff at Friendly Pines kept me informed about how she was doing the whole time she was with the nurse. Every time I've gone to pick my daughter up it reminds me of when I went to camp! I would highly recommend this camp to anyone looking for a great place for your kids!!”
Debi P. -San Tan Valley, AZ
“Your children only live once and for them to experience camp the way my kids did is a wonderful experience. It's a time to let them spread their wings and fly. The staff and this camp is hands down the best. They made me feel completely 100% safe about leaving my kids in their care. My kids will never forget their first year of camp and I will not either. Definitely going to be sending them for years to come.”
