Summer Camps 2020: It's Virtual!

For the safety of our campers, their families and our camp staff, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person summer camp programs this year. Based on CDC guidelines for safe summer camps, we do not feel that we can provide the camp experience that you have come to expect. We understand that this will be a big disappointment for many families.

We are excited to offer several online, virtual camps for elementary and middle-school-aged children; please read details and register here on our website. 

We will refund all payments made as soon as possible. Please allow about four weeks. If you wish to apply any fees paid this year toward next summer, let us know and we will credit your account for 2021. Or, if you wish to apply any funds already paid to one or more of the new virtual camps, please contact us at

We are sorry for not being able to offer our in-person summer camps and apologize for the inconvenience it may cause. We remain hopeful that next summer we will be able to welcome you back to Penn Charter Summer Camps 2021.

Welcome to Penn Charter Summer Camps in Philadelphia. For more than 50 years we have been making summer fun! Read camp director Charlie Kaesshaefer's reflections on summer camps past and present.
