Summerside Camps at SCH

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 STEM to outdoor adventures to sports and arts, 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 offers 10 weeks of day camp and specialty camp from June 12 - August 18, 2023, including before and aftercare options (as early as 7:30 AM and 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. Summerside Camps provide a place where your camper(s), pre-k through 9th, will build friendships and memories to last a lifetime.
