Welcome to Summerside Camps 2022

Summerside Camps at SCH Academy provides innovative, creative, and fun camp programming for children in grades Pre-K through 9 throughout the summer months. From computer coding to outdoor adventures to sports skill-building, there's a variety of options for every camper’s passion as well as our much-loved day camp, featuring weekly themes and exciting special events. Summerside Camps offers 10 weeks of day camp and specialty camp programs in summer 2022, from June 13 - August 19, including before and aftercare options so your day can begin as early as 7:30 AM and end as late as 6:00 PM.

Summerside Camps is located in Chestnut Hill (Northwest Philadelphia), at the edge of the Wissahickon Valley Park, just 20 minutes from Center City, 5 minutes from Mt. Airy, 10 minutes from Manayunk, and nearby Montgomery County locations. Summerside Camps is an urban oasis providing a true, outdoor experience unlike any other camp in the city. Summerside’s campers explore the outdoors while enjoying all the robust amenities that our 62-acre Springside Chestnut Hill Academy campus has to offer. With over 50 miles of trails, woods, meadows, and the Wissahickon Creek running through our backyard, campers are encouraged to develop a passion for lifelong outdoor adventure and an appreciation for nature. 

Summerside Camps are led by SCH Academy's year-round Director of Summer Programs, Andy Morris. All Summerside staff are dedicated to creating an environment where campers will flourish and have fun, strengthening their confidence in an inclusive community. No matter your child’s age or interest, Summerside Camps provide a place where they will build friendships and memories to last a lifetime.
