Sleep Away Camps: Philadelphia Family Summer Camp Guide

For Philadelphia parents seeking an environment for kids to thrive, time at Sleep Away Camp grants essential life lessons, self-knowledge, and peer bonds to blossom into well-rounded human beings.

Beyond the fun of classic camp activities lies a transformative experience that shapes campers’ character when they leave home for a week or more. Separated from home’s comforts, children awaken resilience and independence while forming meaningful connections under the mentorship of caring counselors.

Over weeks together in natural settings, they learn responsibility, problem-solving skills, and teamwork through challenges. Camp memories imprint deep as campers gain self-confidence to discover their abilities, conquering fears like overnighting outdoors or pushing creative limits.
