West Enders, here is your guide to many and varied PA day camps in the area. You and your child will both love this chance to get out of the house and have fun. They can create some art, go rock climbing, learn about nature, or run away and join the circus (for a day). There’s something for your STEM learner, your junior historian, or your budding gymnast. It’ll be a day to remember!
All prices are for full-day camp without extended care, unless otherwise noted. Most camps offer extended care—for a fee and registration required—but some do not.
While most of these camps are offered for every PA day through June; some are only on select PA days. Want to see more options? Find more PA day camps in our directory.
