Our CILT & CIT programs are for campers that have “aged out” of our traditional overnight program. Both programs are reserved for returning campers.

CILT = Camper In Leadership Training. These are usually 15 year old former campers. In this two-week program, CILTs will receive an introduction to the responsibilities and duties of being a Counselor at Friendly Pines. 

CIT = Counselor in Training. These are 16 year olds who have usually completed the CILT year. Their session is a month long, and they participate more in the leading of activities and have more cabin management responsibilities.

We usually open enrollment for the following summer in September each year! It's in your best interest to sign up for our email list so you don't miss out when we announce open enrollment!

The earlier you enroll, the better! Some of our sessions will be full within days of enrollment opening.

To sign up for a waitlisting session, you'll actually register as normal; use the "ENROLL NOW" button at the top of this page. Upon 'check out', you will select the waitlist option right in your shopping cart.

Registering for a waitlist is best if you do it yourself through our online portal, as opposed to you simply emailing or calling us asking to put your camper on a waitlist. However, if you run into any problems during the online sign up process, you can of course call us!

You may sign up for as many or as few session waitlists as you like.

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 (March/May 1st) we’re at. We’ve had waitlists in the past that had 25 people who all eventually were able to get into the session, but conversely, we’ve had waitlists of three 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.

Friendly Pines will contact you if a spot opens up for your camper.

We will first send an email to the address you used to register for the waitlist to notify you of the open spot. If you haven't received an email from us, then a spot has not yet opened and your camper is still on the waitlist. If we need to, we may call you to make sure you got our email.

You will have 24 hours to accept the spot before we move on to the next camper on the list. Please reply to the email we send you to accept the spot. We prefer an email acceptance to a phone call, purely so we have the open slot acceptance in writing with an easily identifiable paper trail.

Deposit payment will be due upon acceptance of a spot.

  • Before March 1st: Initial Deposit Due
  • After March 1st, before May 1st: Initial + Secondary Deposit Due
  • After May 1st: Final payments will be due within 7 days of accepting the open slot
If you're interested to see what number your camper is on a given list, please email registrar@friendlypines.com. Be sure to include your camper's first & last name in the email request so we can look them up. FPC will email campers on a given waitlist first, should spots open up. After we've exhausted our waitlist campers, we will open the available session to the general public for anyone to enroll.

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.

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 evening activities like the Overnight Campout, Round Dance, Carnival, Talent Show, and Rendezvous.

All sessions, unless otherwise specified, are for children ages 5-14.
Two-Week Sessions:

A 13-night program where campers ages 5-14 get to create their own daily schedule by choosing from our 30+ activity offerings. 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! Our most popular sessions.

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.). A popular session with our first-time campers.

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 difference between any of the weeks each session name represents.

PLEASE NOTE: 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. We cannot house a camper signed up for a two-week session with a camper here for a one-week session.

Adventure Camp Session:

A 6-night traditional Friendly Pines Camp program where campers, ages 5-14, will have their 5 favorite activities daily, rather than 8 activities broken up into 4 periods every other day; this is the only major difference from a one-week session, and allows the campers to have 5 activity periods in a day instead of 4. Popular with returning and first-time campers alike.

A common question we get is “Why does this session cost less?”. Adventure Camp 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 Session:

A 6-night program for campers, ages 10-16, that focuses on horseback riding, horsemanship, and horse care. Campers that love horses, have extensive prior experience with horses, and want to ride all day, every day usually go for this session. Campers who like horses, but don’t have much experience with them OR want to participate in our other activities should choose a different two- or one-week session; these campers can still sign up for plenty of horse activities! Very limited enrollment; Previous horse riding experience & extensive time spent around horses necessary for participation.

PLEASE NOTE: Adventure Trails campers are given a set schedule; they do not choose their own activities, and their week-long schedule is comprised of ONLY horse activities. If your camper wants to do anything else, like the Ropes Course, swimming, arts & crafts, etc., or have any “say” in their schedule, they must sign up for any of our other sessions. 

“Why does this session cost as much as a normal one-week session, even though it has the same dates as Adventure Camp?”.  Despite the fact Adventure Trails happens during that “awkward” time of year we mentioned before, this is a HIGHLY specialized session, with extremely limited enrollment. Extra plannings, staff, and resources go into making the Adventure Trails session a success, and our rate reflects this.

Family Camp Sessions:

For info on Family Camp, please visit this webpage.

Campers can cancel and receive a refund, but the amount is dependent on the date of cancellation. If you cancel before March 1st, your camper will receive a full refund, less the $100pp cancellation fee. As we progress further into the spring, more of the tuition becomes non-refundable and serves as the “cancellation fee” in the event of a cancellation. See the table below to see cancellation fee/non-refundable tuition amount by date.

  • For example, if a camper signs up for Session 2 (2 wks) and Trailseeker A (1 wk), they would receive a $125 discount
  • Another example, if a camper enrolls in Adventure Camp (1 wk), Explorer B (1 wk), and Session 3 (2 wks), they would receive a total multi-session discount of $235 ($110 off Adventure Camp + $125 off Explorer B)
DISCOUNT PER SESSION
-$200

TWO-WEEK session
-$125

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.

  • For example, if a family enrolls two campers in Session 3 (2 wks), the second camper would have a $200 discount applied to their total tuition amount
  • Another example: if a family enrolls two children for Session 1 (2 wks), and a third camper for Pioneer A (1 wk), the second camper would receive a $200 discount and the third camper would receive a $125 discount, totaling $325 off the total household statement.

The purpose of the secondary deposit is to break up the payments; in the past, enrollees would pay their deposit in the fall, then a large lump sum in May. 

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). 

We send out weekly Enrollment Update emails to notify current & prospective families on the enrollment or waitlisting status of each of our sessions. To make sure you receive those emails, be sure to join our mailing list!

You can also check the availability of each session on our Dates & Rates webpage. 

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 deadlines (March 1st and/or 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.

PLEASE NOTE: FPC reserves the right to close any and all waitlists at any point during the enrollment season. If you’re at all interested in a session, whether it’s waitlisting or not, do not hesitate to register today! 

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. 

We ran HUGELY successful camp programs in 2021 and 2022, mitigating risk while focusing on fun and connection. If nothing changes significantly by Summer 2023, we have plans in place to ensure we will be able to care for your children.

Please know that if COVID-19 is still a risk, we will take conservative safety measures to ensure our programs are as safe as possible for your family. Community health and risk management have always been paramount for us, but COVID-19 has demonstrated the importance of parent partnership on an unprecedented level. If the virus is still a threat, participation in FPC’s programs will require you and your family to help us keep our camp community safe from outbreaks.

Possible COVID policies (several of which were in place for our 2021/2022 seasons!) we may need to implement in 2023 and future summers, should we deem it necessary:

  • Antigen or PCR Testing before & after arrival at camp
  • Social distancing efforts
  • Wearing masks in mixed-group, indoor situations
  • Requiring staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID
  • Encouraging campers (that are eligible) to get vaccinated 
  • Keeping campers in their cabin groups for the first few days of camp & having them follow a set schedule (but then allowing them to move into individual-choice schedules after we’ve passed the point of symptoms showing up)
  • Possibly more, depending on local, state, and CDC guidance

You can read more about our COVID policies we implemented for Summer 2022 by clicking here.

Our tuition covers all activities, food & snacks, and housing for their entire session.

Your camper may have some small charges added to their Camp Store account during their stay; Charges to the child’s store account are made for laundry charges (in excess of $15; an option two-week campers only), any purchases, craft and sewing supplies, transportation charges, “pre-existing” medical prescriptions, etc.
