    No Camp week of July 4

Friendship Foundation Summer Camp is held at Pacific Elementary School in Manhattan Beach. The first week of camp will be June 20th and will run through the first week of August, meeting Monday-Thursday. We will not have camp the week of July 4th. Registration will open in early May. Please keep in mind that this camp will fill quickly after registration opens.

Children ages 8 to 17 will be paired 1 to 1 with a volunteer (see below for volunteer opportunities). There will be a volunteer training available for all volunteer registrants before camp begins.

Camp at Pacific will consist of a rotation of four activities each day. Our activities will be engaging and hands-on and will include sports, arts, drama, music, science, yoga, and much, much more. We will bring in vendors to do bubble shows, show off different reptiles, and even have a magic show! Dress appropriately on Thursdays, as we do water activities!


The Friendship Foundation is looking for high energy volunteers with a positive attitude between ages 8 and 30. Ages 8-17 will be paired with a buddy to promote an organic friendship and provide additional social-emotional support throughout the day. We ask that when you register to volunteer, that your commitment is for the entirety of the week. Volunteers over the ages of 18 will be grouped with other campers with age appropriate pod.


The Friendship Foundation supports parents and families who have children and young adults with special needs by providing a safe, accepting and inclusive environment where they can enjoy sports, art, music and many other social programs with their peers. Our friendly staff and helpful volunteers create a fun experience for all. It is our belief that every person is precious and capable of love, connection and friendship.
