What is FHK?


Friends Helping Kids, Inc. was formed as a 501(c)(3) non profit organization comprised completely of volunteers and run solely through generous private and in-kind donations. 


The mission is to provide a traditional, overnight summer camp (Krewe de Camp) experience to children with developmental disabilities while also giving their parents and caretakers a much needed rest.


We operate the one week long camp without charging the campers or their caretakers any fees so that the experience is available to all families regardless of financial need. Our campers get to experience an array of activities including swimming, outdoor games, guest presenters, arts and crafts, concerts, a dance, and a fair.  Camp is also an opportunity to socialize among peers and relax in a fun nurturing atmosphere.


In addition to our camp, we hold several events throughout the year to grow the FHK family and keep in touch with our current campers and graduates of our program.

Our Philosophy

Provide a traditional summer camp experience, free of charge, to children with developmental disabilities.  Along side our primary mission we strive to offer a place where high school volunteers can fulfill their want to give service to others.

Our History

For almost 30 years we have operated as a free traditional summer camp experience for children and adults with developmental disabilities.  We have experienced a handful of camp names over the years but our mission to serve families has remianed the same.
