Nestled on over 500 acres skirting the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Camp Friendship is a world unto itself–a place where time seems to pass more slowly, causing you to wonder what decade you’re in. Our guests aren’t just renting cabins. They’re immersing themselves in an outdoor experience with access to all our grounds provide – a private space to get away.
Built on dreams over 50 years ago, Camp Friendship is one of those places that lets you forget about the problems of the world. It may sound full of hokey pokey, but it’s the truth. It’s why Camp Friendship was founded and what we are all about. Chuck Ackenbom established Camp Friendship in 1966, and the business is still proudly run by the Ackenbom family today.

We are a no-frills summer camp complete with charming old-school cabins. We believe that our accommodations are the right amount of rustic, but trust us when we say, our cabins are not for everyone. We are a true summer camp for kids, not a proper resort. Just think of it as camping indoors! We may be rough-around-the-edges but we are truly a place for you to let go, sit back and relax.
