city country camp

Calling All Campers

With spring right around the corner, it will soon be time for another summer of fun at The Philadelphia School.  Registration for City Country Camps 2015 is open, and spaces are filling up quickly.  Campers can choose from a variety of camps each week from June 8 - July 10.  Go fishing along the banks of the Schuylkill River, explore Digital Media, or join in All-Star Sports.  Try your hand at Woodworking in our Maker Lab or sing and dance your way into a broadway-style production of Charlotte's Web


At Firekeepers Camp, children learn advanced wilderness skills.  Firekeepers begin with stealth skills and move into more engagement with nature: making bows and arrows from sapling, crafting and manipulating traditional tools like the one-string slingshot, and practicing fire making both with and without matches.

At Ricketts Glen, after two days of wilderness training that included the art of camouflage, our Firekeepers put all they learned into action.
