Welcome to Camp Friendship!
So what is Camp Friendship? It is a place where people come for fun, to be loved, and to have the experiences of an extraordinary life. Camp Friendship IS acceptance, possibility, and freedom.
Camp Friendship is a summer camp in the Black Hills of South Dakota catering to individuals with physical and developmental disabilities. Campers go swimming, do arts and crafts, have campfires and cookouts, sing songs, go fishing, dress up for the dance, perform skits, and make life-long friends. The camp is staffed by a family of over 150 volunteers that provide one-on-one care and assistance for each camper as well as creating all of the program activities. Camp consists of three sessions with two- and three- day overnight camps. Camp Friendship provides these services at minimal expense to each camper using funding provided by the Rapid City and South Dakota Jaycees, other service organizations, and private donations. We are insured under the liability insurance of the Boy Scouts of America.
