Summer Recreation Camp Information

Children love our traditional camp format where they rotate through a variety of supervised activities throughout the week including games, team building, arts & crafts, sports, music, swimming, entertainment, weekly talent show, camp Olympics and field trips, all in one week of fun.

The children enjoy swim time at the Chester Area Pool, on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday mornings. Children are transported on a school bus for Field Trips which take place every Wednesday. Special entertainment is provided every Monday including live animal shows, magic shows, and much more.

Camp hours are 9am–3pm with before and after care conveniently offered to extend the camp day fun for kids. After care offered from 3–6pm and before care offered from 8-9am.  Register and pay for any before or after care at our weekly camp sign-in with our camp directors the first day of camp.
