PIC's urban campus provides easy access to all that the Greater Philadelphia area has to offer children during the summer. Camp is divided into 10 weekly sessions, each with a focus on different theme-related activities. In addition to themed sessions, campers enjoy water play, play at neighborhood parks, visit the museums and cultural institutions that surround us, take trips to the nearby lakes, movies, play games, and see shows by visiting musicians and other performing artists.
PIC Summer Camp provides child care for children entering grades K-5.
Camp is open from 8 am to 6 pm. We ask that campers arrive before 10 am.
