It’s Camp in a Box!

Friendship Circle delivers the spirit of camp

Over 70 families were thrilled when Friendship Circle appeared at their door to deliver a special surprise. It was Camp in a Box filled with lots of activities created and assembled by Friendship Circle’s dedicated staff.

Inside, families found carefully packaged crafts and puzzles meant to recreate the sense of fun and curiosity of camp at home.

By surprising families with Camp in a Box, everyone who wasn’t able to attend camp this year can still feel included in the Friendship Circle family. Right now, many feel more isolated due to social distancing, making it more important than ever to ensure every individual knows that they matter.

Brady Bond was surprised and delighted to receive his Camp in a Box after missing being with his Friendship Circle pals. The whole family has missed Friendship Circle tremendously, said Brady’s mom Natalie, making the surprise that much more meaningful.

“He was so happy to open the box and look through the MANY fun activity bags,” said Natalie. “We are excited to do the crafts and activities together.”

Friendship Circle is always thinking of new ways to help each other feel cared about and included. While safety and social distancing is a brand new hurdle, Friendship Circle has continued to find ways to support families while apart.

Since March, Friendship Circle of Michigan has launched virtual programming in partnership with Friendship Circles from all over. A newcomer to virtual programming is Ayan Jain, who was beyond excited to receive his Camp in a Box.

“Ayan is loving Camp in a Box,” said Julie, Ayan’s mom. “[He] is not usually very good with arts and crafts but likes this box as he gets to do it [at] his pace and choice independently.”
