Carol Joy Holling Camp

At Friends Camp, you’ll experience first-hand what summer camp is like from the comfort of the Swanson Retreat Center. And, like all campers, you will enjoy the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and make some new ones, too.

Join us on Tuesday, June 15, for a day of fun-filled camp activities. Start the morning with a tour of the new Hazel Dillon Lodge, cool down with a sno kone, and end the day with the state of camp address. If you’re able to spend the night, the camp fun will continue through lunch on Wednesday.
