Summer Friends was named a Talk of the Town Favorite
by Delco News Network five years in a row!

The children at Summer Friends participate in a wide variety of experiences that help them shape their vision of the people and the world around them. Children enjoy the freedom of summer in a welcoming and relaxed environment. 

The campers at Summer Friends are free to explore, play, and express themselves in the safe community found year-round at Media-Providence Friends School. Smaller groups allow for meaningful interaction with teachers as well as other children of similar ages and all activities are tailored for campers’ developmental and physical levels.

Summer Friends is led by professional educators and experienced specialists, with additional staffing provided by counselors-in-training (many of whom are MPFS alum.) Our counselors excel in crafting an environment that fosters creativity, enthusiasm, and exploration. Camp staff are committed to inclusivity and building community for a safe, welcoming camp experience.

Onsite programs are complemented by special weekly presentations from magicians, scientists, the Philadelphia Zoo, and more, as well as field trips to nature centers, zoos, parks, theaters and other local events.
