Whether your child is making meaningful friendships, learning how to work as part of a team, gaining independence, or developing the confidence to try new things, one thing is for certain:

Frankford Friends offers a summer that your child won’t soon forget.

Get ready for a summer packed with innovation and exploration.  We're here to unravel the wonders of engineering through play, teamwork, discovery, hands-on experiments, and creative tinkering. Students also enjoy choice time in the art, ceramics, and music studios, the gym, the makerspace, and the LEGO Lab, combining in a magical session of summer fun.

Filled with innovation, exploration, and endless fun, our program for children in PreKindergarten to 5th grade, combines the best elements of a day camp with the safety, nurturing environment, and exceptional teaching Frankford Friends is known for. Children will be placed in age-appropriate groups to ensure maximum fun and student safety.

And what's a summer without water? Relax in the 'Mist'ical Forest, a specially designed water area in our half-acre, stormwater-designed, outdoor green space, where everyone can cool off and have a blast!
