Summer Camp Redefined

 

The Philadelphia School offers four weeks of dynamic camps for children in preschool through 8th grade in a way that redefines the camping experience. Choose from our City Country Day Camp, one of our Enrichment Camps (for example, Chess Camp or Coding Camp), or one of our two-week Summer Institutes.

City Country Day Camp


City Country Day Camp


City Country Day Camp is a TPS-style day camp offered to students currently in preschool through grade 5 (there are two programs – the "Seeds" for current preschool and kindergarteners and the "Explorers" for children currently in 1st through 5th grades). Our camp encourages children to broaden their horizons and enjoy the freedom to dabble daringly. Campers will explore Philadelphia, work in the TPS garden, play in our Center City classrooms, and enjoy a community that celebrates and teaches kind, creative, and healthy living.

Enrichment Camps


Enrichment Camps


With more than 30 Enrichment Camps to choose from, everyone can find something that brings excitement to their summer days! For those who love the wind in their face, our Cycling in the City will be just the thing, while those who are drawn to the ancient sport of wrestling will find our Wrestling Camp ideal. Urban scientists can explore the city as History Detectives. Our much anticipated Woodworking program will be back, and much, much more!

Summer Institutes engage students currently in grades 6-11 in forming educated opinions and seeing themselves as leaders tackling tough issues facing society and the world. Each institute engages participants with experts in the field, hands-on activities, travel, and community service.
