Sandy Spring Friends school Summer at Sandy Spring takes place on the 140-acre wooded campus of the Sandy Spring Friends School. Sandy Spring Friends School (SSFS) has been an educational institution for over 60 years. SSFS is a Pre-Kindergarten through 12th Grade (ages 4 through 18) college preparatory day school for about 575 boys and girls with an optional boarding program in the Upper School. Founded in 1961, SSFS is located in the historic Quaker community of Sandy Spring in the heart of Montgomery County, Maryland, only 30 minutes from Baltimore and Washington, D.C. The school offers a diverse student body, strong academics that include Advanced Placement courses in the Upper School, arts, athletic programs, and an emphasis on traditional Quaker values. The school also has several state-of-the-art performance spaces, athletic fields and courts, and science facilities.
About us 4.
Summer at Sandy Spring (formerly Summer Friends Day Camps) was founded in 1992 at Sandy Spring Friends School (SSFS) as a service to SSFS faculty and families, providing a unique summer experience grounded in Quaker values. The camp goals were to engage in exploration, learning, friendship, and summer-time fun. These core values remain, even as our program has adapted to the needs of our busy families. Come join us and see all the fun weâ€™re having!
Why Summer At Sandy Spring? • Flexible scheduling and cost • A variety of activites for all age groups & interests • Safe, nurturing environment • New programs for 2014: Farm Camp Little Friends Camp at The Sandy Spring Museum • Low camper to counselor ratio • Proven record of success for over 20 years • Our own buses for pick up, drop off & field trips • Celebration of Quaker values such as Honesty, Nonviolence, & Social Responsibility
Summer at Sandy Spring is Proud to Be Accredited by the American Camp Association! The American Camp Association (ACA) is a community of camp professionals dedicated to enriching the lives of children and adults through the camp experience. A cornerstone of the ACA’s efforts is its Accreditation Process—a way of grading how camps are doing. The standards against which camps are measured ensure that each camp complies with approximately 300 distinct health, safety, and program-quality benchmarks. Beyond a state’s basic licensing requirements, ACA Standards address specific areas of programming, personnel, health care, emergency response, management practices, and youth development. Standards are applied to all activities in camp. The ACA collaborates with experts from The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth service agencies to assure that current practices at your child’s camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Camps and the ACA form a partnership that promotes growth and fun in an environment committed to safety. ACA Accreditation is the best evidence parents have of a camp’s commitment to a safe and nurturing environment for their children. We are very proud of this achievement which required significant self-study, preparation, training and tremendous attention to protocol and process. Our entire team is committed to holding the camp to a very high standard day-in and day-out so that we can provide a safe and nurturing summer experience for our campers. Additional information on what is entailed in accreditation can be found at www.acacamps.org.
Jumpstart your summer of fun! For campers who are looking to start their camp experience a week early, Summer at Sandy Spring offers fun-filled activities on campus and at a variety of fun and interesting off-campus locations. All travel will be by SSFS bus, and a nutritious lunch will be provided.

Academics Workshop Grades 1–6
Reading Rainbow These fun-filled reading sessions reinforce a variety of important skills, ranging from decoding words and building vocabulary to identifying the key elements in a story and understanding the difference between a main idea and supporting details in written work. Instructors tailor developmentally appropriate learning strategies to each student’s level of ability. Children are immersed in literature that naturally increases their enthusiasm for reading.
Writers’ Workshop These intensive sessions focus on five key aspects of the writing process: brainstorming, outlining, writing a first draft, editing, and publishing. Children engage in both expository and creative writing assignments. Younger students dictate their thoughts and ideas to the teacher to discover how spoken words can be seen in writing; older students build on existing skills to improve their writing mechanics and ability to express thoughts and ideas on paper.

These sessions focus mainly on helping children understand mathematical concepts, work with numbers and operations, and develop reasoning and problemsolving skills. Emphasis is placed on ”drill and skill” and problem-solving experiences customized to different learning styles.
Workshops Grades 2–6
Campers help build their own schedules by selecting different workshops! Most workshops are two weeks in duration. Campers in SENIOR CAMP must choose AM and PM workshops that equal the number of weeks for which they are enrolled (e.g., if the camper is enrolled for weeks 1–4, the camper must choose a total of two morning and two afternoon workshops). Campers in INTERMEDIATE CAMP need to choose one workshop that equals the number of weeks for which they are enrolled (e.g., if the camper is enrolled for weeks 1–4, the camper must choose a total of two workshops). Workshops may be canceled based on enrollment. Please sign up for different workshops to experience our camp’s many offerings!

Culinary arts Grades 6â€“8
As featured on Fox News, our Culinary Arts program introduces campers to the secrets of cooking. Our experienced instructors and visiting chefs share valuable insights with campers and help them feel comfortable in the kitchen. Culinary Arts includes an orientation to the kitchen and its equipment, along with an introduction to basic cooking and baking techniques. As students become more comfortable, they will develop more advanced cooking techniques and time management skills, while learning the foundations of sauces, and showcasing ethnic and cultural dishes from around the world. Campers will use fresh ingredients from our very own organic garden. When they bring home their cookbooks with their favorite recipes, you can try them out for yourselfâ€”or let the master go to work!
Farm Camp Grades 6â€“8
At Farm Camp, campers will learn lifelong culinary and food production skills as they earn Service Learning hours at the SSFS Community Farm. Hands-on learning will teach participants how to start seedlings, prepare raised beds, transplant and finally harvest essential salad crops such as lettuce, spinach, peas, carrots, and radishes. Organic production methods, including cover crops, companion planting and mulch, will be compared to commodity crop production to link concepts of stewardship and sustainability. After lunch, there are opportunities to go on trips to nearby farms, play camp games, go on wild foraging hikes in the surrounding woods and fields, and go for a daily swim at the pond. On the final day, participants harvest and prepare a picnic lunch from the crops they have been cultivating. *Campers should be prepared to get dirty and should dress accordingly. Boots or sturdy shoes are required. Everyone should bring a water bottle, a swim suit, towel, and sun protection including hats, sunglasses and sunscreen. We will work in light rain and have informative films on standby in case of steady downpours. Please note that Service Learning hours will be awarded for the 4 hours when campers are working in the garden.
