Camp Woodlight (Ages 6-11)
Available in our Northeast Philadelphia locations
For over 50 years, children have come to Camp Woodlight to have fun, develop important skills, and make friendships to last a lifetime.
All Day Camp
Unlike many camps, Camp Woodlight is open from 6:30am – 6:00pm…perfect to meet the needs of working parents. 5 and 9 week sessions are available, and private and subsidized tuition payments are accepted.
Our counselors are an essential part of the camp experience. Most work year round with children, or are currently enrolled in a college program related to education and child development. Our counselors receive training in CPR, first aid, fire safety and water safety prior to the start of each camp season. They also participate in several orientations and training days each year.
An outdoor pavilion serves as the centralized meeting area for camp-wide get-togethers and meals. It provides shade, and protects campers from light rain. When weather conditions require campers to be indoors, a gym and other air – conditioned indoor space is available .
A GaGa court offers campers the opportunity to learn this challenging game.
Field Trips and Special Events
Campers visit notable destinations in the area, including The Academy of Natural Sciences, the Franklin Institute and the Philadelphia Zoo. They also enjoy several on-site events, such as The Mad Science Show, a martial arts demonstration, and an acrobatic show. Ten trips/events are planned for each season, and are included in the cost of tuition.
Art, Sports and STEM specialists work with campers throughout the summer. Specialists begin planning developing dynamic and engaging lessons months before the summer begins. Specialists work with campers daily to help them develop their unique skills and talents.
These days are particularly popular with our campers and staff because they are so much fun. Some Spirit Days planned for this year include Pajama Day, Crazy Hair Day, and Backwards Day.
