Pennsylvania Traditional Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

Pennsylvania Traditional Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

With mountains, rivers, streams, fields, and even big cities, Pennsylvania traditional summer camps introduce kids and teens to a variety of different sports, arts, enrichment, and special events activities in a safe, friendly, and inviting environment. Whether it's hiking a scenic trail, making friendship bracelets at arts and crafts, or scoring the winning goal on the soccer field, campers can do it all at Pennsylvania traditional summer camps. Pennsylvania summer camps are staffed by teachers, educators, and coaches who provide quality instruction and supervision as campers travel to various activities.

There are many subtle differences that distinguish Pennsylvania traditional summer camps from each other. Some camps allow campers to choose their own schedule (these camps are called "free choice" programs), while others offer a structured program preselected by the camp. Some Pennsylvania traditional camps offer religious programs, while others are nondenominational. When it comes to competition, some camps are strictly non-competitive, while others encourage healthy competition to help campers improve. Regardless of the program that families choose, traditional summer camps help boys, girls, and teens make friends, build confidence, and enjoy an incredible summer experience in the great outdoors!

Choosing the Best Pennsylvania Traditional Summer Camp

There are many important questions your family should consider when choosing a Pennsylvania traditional summer camp. Does the program offer a variety of activities, or do they concentrate on just a few specialties? Does the camp encourage competition, and if so, at what level? Do campers choose their own schedule, or does the camp provide one for them? What is the average age of the staff? What is the camp's staff and camper annual return rate? What values does the camp look to instill by the end of the summer? Knowing which program elements will suite your children best is essential to choosing a great Pennsylvania traditional summer camp.
