Summerside is Resting Until 2022

Summerside Camps at SCH Academy provides innovative, creative, and fun camp programming for children in grades Pre-K through 9th throughout the summer months (June-August). From computer coding to outdoor adventures to sports skill-building, there's a variety of options for every camper’s passion as well as an all-around day camp that features weekly themes and special fun. 

Last summer, we offered 11 weeks of programming from June - August, 2021. Summerside's hub is located in SCH’s state-of-the-art McCausland Lower School and access to the school’s 62-acre campus adjacent to the Wissahickon Valley Park. The abundance of creative playspaces and shaded trails ensure that every child will get to explore our urban oasis daily.

Our dedicated team of Summerside Camp instructors are SCH faculty and coaches, providing a distinctive difference in the camp experience whether in the robotics lab, on the athletic field, or amphitheater stage. Summerside Camps safely and successfully operated its camps during 2020 & 2021 summers and is planning for another SUN-tastic season in 2022!
