Camp Jamison

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 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!
