All the Sides of Summer!

Summerside Day Camp is our 10-week day camp program built especially for campers in pre-k through grade 6. Each week is themed with exciting activities and games, ranging from superhero water challenges to Olympic games and talent shows.  

Each week of camp is about FUN! We take full advantage of SCH Academy's 62-acre campus—both indoors and outside. Campers will play, learn, and grow throughout their week(s) participating in Art, Music, Sports, Swimming, and Outdoor Adventures, including our amazing ropes course and utilizing the beautiful Wissahickon Woods. Take a dip, play a song, swing from a tree, score a goal, and create an artistic masterpiece all during our Day Camp offerings. Weekly themes are woven into each area of camp, making each week a unique experience full of possibilities and joy.

Please note: pre-k campers must be 3 years old by September, 2022 to enroll. All campers enrolled in Day Camp will be grouped by similar age and spend the majority of their day with those campers.
