I wonder if that’s the cabin I lived in? The visitor takes deep breath of the pine air. The memories come rushing back. It’s another Friendly Pines Camp alum.

After nearly eight decades of sharing the wonders of summer camp, Friendly Pines Camp has become one of the most formative experiences in the lives of tens of thousands. Friendly Pines Camp is not only where they learned to start a fire, swing an axe, waterski, or ride a horse, it is also the place where they overcame shyness, gained confidence, discovered the profound beauty of nature, and developed friendships that have lasted a lifetime.
