Welcome to Summer Camp at State College Friends School, where playful theme weeks blend the freedom of summer fun with thoughtfully planned opportunities to explore new interests and ideas, build friendships and develop new skills and self-confidence. As a Friends school, our curriculum and programs, including Summer Camp, are built on the foundation of the Quaker testimonies of peace, integrity, community, stewardship, and equality. Our camp counselors model positive communication, empathy, open-mindedness, compassionate conflict resolution, and inclusion as they guide participants through fun-filled days.
Registration for Summer Camp 2023 will open to current SCFS families on January 19th, returning campers and pre-registered early birds on January 27th, and to new campers on February 1st.
All of our summer camps are held at State College Friends School, located at 1900 University Drive. The school and grounds offer many amenities ideal for a summer camp. The spacious, air-conditioned Community Room provides group games and cool relief from summer weather. Our school grounds feature outdoor courts, athletic fields, playground equipment, and a giant sand pond.
After Camp Care
After Camp care, with supervised activities and playtime, is available daily for children in Kids Camp from 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. when camp is in session. The cost is $8/hour. Please inquire about After Camp Care for children ages 3 to 5 attending Wee Friends Camp.
Snack and Lunch
Full-day campers need to bring their own snack, lunch, and drink in an insulated container. NOTE: All of our camps are peanut–free as well as wheat and nut aware. Please be sure to let us know on your registration form if your child has food or dietary restrictions or non-food allergies.
All deposits are non-refundable, non-transferable, and due at the time of registration ($40 per camp week registered).
Cancellation is allowed up to two weeks prior to each registered camp; you will be refunded any balance paid beyond the deposit for the week(s) you need to cancel. If you have not paid the balance for any camp registered for within 2 weeks of the camp start date, you will forfeit that camper's spot. Refunds will be at the discretion of the Friends School summer camp administrator-in-charge.
