TPS Pop-Up Camp @ Smith Playground

Backyard Bugs Pop-up Camp is a partnership program between The Philadelphia School and  Smith Playground.  It's our first TPS pop-up camp experience!

The Philadelphia School and Smith Memorial Playground and Playhouse are proud to present Backyard Bugs, a free program for 3- to 5-year-olds! Games, art projects, and other activities will teach campers how bugs live, move, and eat.  Children will explore Smith Playground in search of  beetles, butterflies, spiders, and more!

The pop-up camp was the brainchild of Frances Hoover, TPS Director of Institutional Advancement. Kim Carter, our Director of Auxiliary Programming, did all of the heavy lifting related to getting the camp up and running, and TPS gardener Bri Barton planned the program and activities.

Here's a link to the promo on the Smith Playground website. All sessions are already full and have wait lists!  We're very excited about this new venture and look forward to the first session of camp on July 18.
