Four Weeks Of Summer Camp

We are happy to announce that we will be offering four weeks of summer camp to campers of all abilities. New for 2013, Social Camp  will be open to individuals of all abilities!

Social Summer Camp is an innovative four week program that will combine learning critical social skills with a fun and engaging camp experience.

Camp will follow a traditional camp format of campers being divided into groups or bunks based on age. Camp will have high staff to camper ratios and will provide one-on-one volunteers on an as-needed basis.

Overnight Camp

New For 2013! Friendship Circle, The Bear Hug Foundation and St. Francis Camp on the Lake are teaming up to create an incredible overnight camp experience.

Friendship Circle will be traveling to Jerome, Michigan for a Five day, Four night stay at St. Francis Camp. St. Francis Camp is a beautiful state-of-the-art, handicap accessible 36-acre site. It includes 19 acres of waterfront, a sandy beach, rustic woods, developed nature trails, sports areas and two beautiful cedar lodges where campers and counselors are housed.

Lose The Training Wheels

Due to popular demand we will once again be offering the Lose The Training Wheels Bike Clinic!  Friendship Circle is partnering with I Can Shine (Formerly known as Lose The Training Wheels) to teach children with special needs how to ride a two wheel bicycle.

This program has been made possible thanks in part to a grant from the Autism Society – Oakland County Chapter

Miracle League

Friendship Circle and Miracle League will once again join together to give children with special needs the chance to be part of a real baseball league.

This program takes place on Miracle League’s state-of-the art field located in Southfield, Michigan. This custom designed field accommodates wheelchairs and prevents injuries to ensure fun and exciting games throughout the summer.
