Punxsutawney Area 2012 Camp Friendship
Camp Friendship is a free summer day camp for any exceptional person residing in the area. Camp Friendship is aimed toward individuals with more involved disabilities than just learning disabilities. School aged children applying as campers must be part of a special education program in order to be eligible. Adults who were part of a special education program while in school are also welcome.
Participants will attend daily art, music, physical education, and nature study classes taught by certified teachers. In addition, organized group activities such as a camp birthday party, talent show, rocket blasting, Carnegie Science Center visit, Punxsy Carnival, fire trucks, horse-back riding, Fourth of July Parade, and swimming are just some of the many activities being planned in the afternoons.
A nutritious morning and afternoon snack, as well as a hot lunch will be provided each day. However, if your camper has a very specific diet, you may need to provide alternative foods. Camp Friendship is located near Reynoldsville, off Route 322. The camp dates are June 14th, 15th, 18th - 22th , June 27 (Carnival), and June 29th (Parade). Any participants are welcome to ride the bus from the Punxsutawney Area Community Center daily. Pick-up in the morning will be at 8:30 in the Community Center parking lot and we will arrive back at the Community Center parking lot at 2:45. Times are approximate; please be patient since some situations are beyond our control.
All applicants are accepted unless otherwise notified. If you have any questions regarding Camp Friendship please call Betsy at 814-952-8376. We encourage you to consider Camp Friendship as a summer opportunity for your child.
