Camp Jamison believes that every child should get to experience sleeping in a cabin, hiking through the woods, and roasting marshmallows with friends.
Camp Jamison believes that a summer camp experience has the power to change lives! They believe every child should experience sleeping in a cabin, hiking through the woods, and roasting marshmallows with friends. Since opening in 2011, that is why they’ve offered a comprehensive, one-week overnight summer camp experience to all Philadelphia area children.
Their mission at Camp Jamison is to offer a diverse, inclusive, and, most importantly, affordable program! For kids growing up in a city with so many challenges, Camp Jamison offers a much-needed escape and reset – a fun, relaxing, and reflective week full of activities designed to strengthen children’s interpersonal and peace-building skills to empower them to become community leaders back home, in their Philly neighborhoods.

My daughter and son have been going here and love it every summer. We appreciate the community feel.
My daughter expressed that she had a wonderful time. This was my daughter’s first year and first time being away from home for a week. She had a ball and experienced things such as canoeing 🛶 for the first time. She loved her counselor and made several friends. Jayla Chloe said she will miss you 😘
Thank you Camp Jamison for such a wonderful experience!
