Campers may still register for Summer Day Camps

Campers may still register for 2014 Summer Day Camps in Lower Southampton Township, it was recently announced by Matt Gilbert, Parks and Recreation Director.

In making the announcement, Matt says that there are still slots available for interested families and he is gearing up for an exciting and energetic nine-week camping experience for youngsters from June 23rd to August 24th.

“This year’s camps will feature a full share of recreational activities, crafts, instructional enrichment and fun-filled cultural excursions,” he relates. “Our program has been carefully designed to allow every child to grow and mature through a series of supervised programs and activities embracing physical development, socialization, teamwork and camaraderie.”

Camp will be divided into a series of age- segmented groups starting with the  Pioneer Camp for children ages three to five, which will be located at Russell Elliott Memorial Park on Buck Road. Discovery Camp for ages five to 12 and seven to 12 will be run simultaneously at two locations, the Dolphin Swim Club, 260 West Bristol Road, and the Joseph J. Ferderbar Elementary School, 300 Heights Lane. Teen Camp for teens 13-years plus also will be located at the Dolphin Swim Club. There also will be a Counselor-In-Training Program for teenagers 13-years of age and beyond which will be housed at the Dolphin or Ferderbar locations. “We have wonderful programs for children of all ages, however, I encourage parents to register early because space is limited,” Matt notes.

In 2014, special Summer Day Camp resident rates will be offered to all people residing in the 19053 zip code and all of Upper Southampton Township. Cost for a youngster residing in those areas is $649 for the season with a $155  deposit required. The non-resident rate is $849 per child with a $234 deposit required.

A full camp payment schedule and further information is available on request at 215 -357-7300, extension 340 or online at www.lowersouthamptontownship.org.
