Summer Camp

Summer Camper

Update: 6/15/20: The PIC Summer Camp 2020 will open for children in grades 1 through 5 on Monday, July 13 and will run for 6 weeks (ending Friday, August 21) with a daily schedule from 9 am-3 pm. There will be no camp for rising kindergarteners this year. There are health and safety protocols that will be put in place. The program format and group sizes have been adjusted. If you have any questions, please email Director of School Age Programs Anjali Gallup-Diaz at agallupdiaz@parentinfantcenter.org

Update 5/7/20: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and per the order of the Governor of Pennsylvania, PIC is closed until further notice.

We are accepting applications to save a spot for Summer Camp 2020 (application fees/deposit/payment are not required at this time).

Our plans for summer camp will be finalized once we know when PIC will reopen and the health and safety recommendations from the Center for Disease Control at that time.

At this time, we are certain that Summer Camp 2020 will look different from the plans outlined below, which were determined well before the current public health crisis.

Please email any questions to:

We wish you and your family well during this difficult time.
