These experiences are designed for children to enjoy together, in age-appropriate groups, with highly experienced teachers from WCFS and around the community.  Each day provides unique opportunities for enrichment and creativity, to encourage students to discover and develop new interests and emerging  talents. Children create…explore…and experience in the same supportive setting and nurturing community that West Chester Friends School provides all year long.


Play School Friends (Rising Play School) and

Little Friends (Rising Pre-K and Kindergarten Students)

For Play School and Little Friends, each week focuses on the exploration of different themes, through art, science, music, fitness, gardening, stories and games, and including yoga, water play days, dance/movement  and other age-appropriate activities.  Campers are outdoors whenever weather permits, Play School and Little Friends have lunch at their picnic tables and a rest (or nap, if needed) in their classroom each afternoon.  There is some flexibility with schedules; call Karen at 610-696-22820 for more information.


Awesome Adventurers (Rising First and Second Grade) and Amazing Explorers (Rising Third through Sixth Grade)

With the focus on outdoor fun and learning, these students enjoy a variety of activities, centered on a particular theme.  Each day, there are age-appropriate art and music activities,  sports and games including yoga and dance/movement, music, fitness, gardening and more!  Some weeks include walking and field trips. WCFS offers the opportunity for  Summer Climb Time for rising first through rising sixth graders, which includes math and language arts activities with the WCFS Learning Specialist for those families who choose them (see below).



Parents often worry that over the summer, their students may lose some of their learning from the previous school year.  In the summer, WCFS offers the option of Summer Climb Time during their regular camp day.  Two days a week, Teacher Karen Martini will offer a 30-45 minute, small group time, one for  language arts fun and enrichment, and one for math. This program is optional.  Families may select the Summer Climb Time for language arts, math, or both.  They are available to WCFS summer campers in rising first through sixth grade at no charge.
