Yee haw! Grab your cowboy hats, and put on your boots for our western camp. How good are you at the Do-Si-Do? Or is line dancing your favorite? Try your hand at playing horseshoes, lassoing or even panning for gold. We hope you will join us at our Friendship O.K. Corral Camp!

Girls can apply to be a CIT II if they have previous camp leadership experience. They must register for camp and attend all camp staff meetings.


Camp fee includes four meals, snacks, crafts, swimming and camp patch.
$65 Camp fee, girls grades K–5
$75 Camp fee, girls who have completed grades 6 and up and are attending as campers (due to an offsite activity, if there are enough girls participating)

Checks (payable to Friendship Weekend Camp) or money orders preferred. If using a credit card, GSVSC has a 3.75% service charge in addition to the camp fee. (Example: $65 camp fee * 0.0375 service charge = $2.44, so total cost will be $67.44).
