Session Explanation,
Discounts & Waitlists

All of our sessions are virtually the same; food and lodging is included, campers live in a cabin of similarly aged children, and they participate in a variety of different activities as well as the evening activities like the Round Dance, Talent Show, Campfire time, and Rendezvous.

All sessions, unless otherwise specified, are for boys & girls ages 5-15. 

Two-Week Sessions:

A 13-night program where boys and girls will participate in most of our 30+ activity offerings and travel from activity to activity as a cabin group. This is our most popular program, as the children get a real taste of the camp magic, and is a great option even for first-time campers!

One-Week Sessions:

A 6-night program similar to our two-week session, just in half the time. One-week campers do have some specific one-week activities (horses, target sports, ropes course), but also do get mixed in with the two-week campers for most other activities (hiking, water sports, arts & crafts, etc.). The names of the sessions (Pioneer vs. Explorer or Trailseeker A vs. Trailseeker B) are simply used to determine the specific session in question; there is no real difference between any of the different weeks. Popular with our first-time campers. Space is limited. All one week-campers live with other one-week campers (i.e. if friends want to be in the same cabin as one another, they must be enrolled in the same type of session). 

Mountaineer Week & Trailseeker C:

These new weeks for 2021 are exactly the same as all our other one-week sessions. Normally, we host a special health camp for children with diabetes and heart disease during these weeks. However, for 2021 both camps have decided to cancel due to COVID concerns for their immunocomprised population. So we’ve decided to fill these weeks with more regular FPC sessions. The price is cheaper for Trailseeker C as an incentive for our camp families to sign up for this new session, so sign up before April 15, 2021 to lock in the introductory rate! 

Adventure Camp:

For 2021, Adventure Camp’s program will not look any different than our other one-week programs. The schedule campers have during Adventure Camp will likely be identical to the one they’d experience if they came to another one-week session later in the summer. 

A common question we get is “Why does this session cost less?”. Adventure Week happens at what we consider an “awkward” time of year…not all of the Arizona schools (or schools in other states for that matter!) are out by the end of May. We lower the price compared to our other sessions in hopes of attracting more people to this somewhat less busy week. Same quality of program, same activities, just a less desirable time of year! 

Adventure Trails & Trailriders:

A 6-night program for boys and girls, ages 8-16, that focuses on horseback riding, horsemanship, and horse care. All skills taught are to prepare campers for a two-day, overnight horseback trip. Campers that love horses and want to ride all day, every day usually go for this session. Very limited enrollment

Family Camp

For info on Family camp, please visit this webpage.

  • $190 for siblings in a two-week session
  • $100 for siblings in a one-week session
  • $75 for siblings in an Adventure Week session

Sibling discounts automatically applied to the second, third, fourth, etc. child enrolled. When siblings are enrolled in sessions of varying length, the discount is applied to the shorter stay.

  • $190 for every additional two-week session by one camper
  • $190 for adding Mountaineer Week (June 6-12, 2021) or Trailseeker C (July 25-31) to your two-week session enrollment (i.e. 3+ weeks total) by one camper
  • $100 for every additional one-week session by one camper
  • $75 for adding on an Adventure Week session
When campers are enrolled in sessions of varying length, the discount is applied to the shorter stay.

Some sessions will have waitlists. Particularly sessions that are in ‘desirable’ times during the summer, or offer a specific program (like Adventure Trails, our horse-specific session). 

The likelihood of getting into a session you’re waitlisted for is hard to call; there are so many factors that go into waitlist movement. It kind of depends on the year, the session, and how much before or after the cancellation deadline (May 1st) we’re at. We’ve had waitlists in the past that had 15 people who all eventually were able to get into the session, but conversely, we’ve had waitlists of one person that never had any movement. So determining how likely your camper is to get in to a specific session is really not always possible to determine. 

There is no penalty for waitlisting, nor is there any money that has to be put down to reserve a spot on the waitlist. If you’re at all interested in potentially getting into a specific session, it is in your best interest to at least get on the waitlist. We will email all campers on a given waitlist first, should spots open up. You can register as normal; upon ‘check out’, you will select the waitlist option right in your shopping cart. You can also enroll for a session that does have availability AND the session that you’re actually interested in but has a waitlist; if a spot opens, we will be able to manually switch your registration. That way you can still get a spot somewhere during the summer.

If you have questions about the waitlist or what position you’re currently in, please contact registrar@friendlypines.com or call us at (928) 445-2128. 

You can cancel and change sessions until May 1st without penalty, save a $100 administration fee. 

Final payments are due May 1st. After this date, we are unable to refund any payments. 

FAMILY CAMP: Final payments due July 1st. Cancellation deadline is July 1st. Families may cancel until then and get all money back paid up to that point, less a $50 admin fee. After this date, refunds are not available. 

Generally speaking, pick up and drop off times for all sessions starting June 12 and later are as follows:

Drop Off
  • You will be assigned a staggered drop off time between 1-3PM* on your camper’s arrival date

Pick Up
  • You may pick your camper up between 8:30-10:30AM** on their departure date. 

*For campers in “B” one-week sessions (Explorer B, Trailseeker B), your drop off time will be between 1-2PM. Your pick up time will be normal/as stated above. 

**For campers in “A” one-week sessions (Pioneer A, Explorer A, etc.), your pick up time will be between 1-2PM. Your drop off time will be normal/as stated above. 

Adventure Week (May 29-June 4)
  • Drop off: 10:30AM-11:45AM
  • Pick Up: 10:15AM-11:45AM

Due to COVID concerns in 2021, we will not be providing transportation to camp. Please make arrangements for your camper to be dropped off at camp.
