CAMP IS FOR EVERYONE.
Friendship Camp is specifically designed to serve campers who are developmentally disabled. The week is a 4 night/5 day opportunity for campers ages 15 and older which provides a safe, fun, and engaging Christian summer camp experience that embraces each campers capabilities. This special program seeks to allow each camper to experience summer camp on their own level and at their own pace.
Friendship Camp will require a $50 deposit at the time of registration to reserve a spot. If you receive respite funds to pay for the camp week your $50 deposit will be returned to you once the full payment is received by CranHill.

The CranHill campus is a place with plenty of hills, gravel roads, and steps. All campers need to be independently mobile and have reasonable balance to handle our forested terrain. Every camper will submit a request form at the time of registration and must be approved by the CranHill staff in order to attend Friendship Camp each summer.
Our Camp Health Officer is trained and qualified for medication management and first aid and will be assisted by a Registered Nurse for the week. Specific medical needs will be evaluated from your registration/health form, but may not be able to be accommodated. All forms are available on the summer camp forms page.
The Friendship Camp level of instruction, activities, and staffing specifically targets the needs of campers who are relatively physically independent. Our camp setting, facilities, and schedule, as well as our staff numbers and training, provide a rewarding, safe experience for campers who can participate with a staff to camper ratio of 1:3.
CranHill is a smoke-free campus and we do not allow smoking (Vapes, E-cigarettes etc.) during Friendship Camp.
CranHill holds the right to deny acceptance of applicants or require the early dismissal of campers due to evidence of an applicant or camper not meeting the camper eligibility listed above. The denial or dismissal decision will be made after careful consideration by the camp Program Director.
