Summerside Camps are located on the beautiful 62-acre campus of Springside Chestnut Hill Academy. We take full advantage of our surroundings and embrace our location as an urban oasis, bordering the 1,800 acre Wissahickon Park with over 50 miles of trails and unrivaled natural beauty. We offer the best of both worlds, with outdoor adventure in our idyllic natural surroundings as well as the air conditioned advantages of our well appointed classrooms and top-notch athletic facilities.
Many campers will have access to our amazing ropes course! Consisting of a blend of low and high elements, the course gives participants the opportunity to learn teamwork, communication, and how to take on unique challenges in a safe and supportive environment.
