We understand that some families may need additional care for their children during the camp day. Friends Academy offers two options: Hangout Zone for half-day campers and Surround Care for full-time campers who need earlier dropoff or later pickup times.

Space in these before- and after-care programs is limited. Please sign up when you register for camp.

Hangout Zone

We offer a weekly half-day “Hangout Zone” option for campers enrolled in half-day specialty camps (Enrichment, Creative, or Sports Camps). For example, if your child is registered for an afternoon Creative Camp, you may sign up for the morning Hangout Zone for the week.

The Hangout Zone will accommodate a range of ages and grade levels. Children will be supervised by camp staff and will participate in outdoor and indoor activities.

  • Morning Hangout Zone: 9a-12pm
  • Afternoon Hangout Zone: 12-3pm

Surround Care

We are also offering Surround Care for families that need an earlier drop-off time or later pick-up time. Morning Surround Care operates from 8-9am and Afternoon Surround Care from 3-4pm. Registration is weekly.
