Enrich Your Child’s Summer with ‘Kids on Campus’ Day Camps

More than 160 programs in the nationally accredited camp are available through August 15 on the Newtown campus.

Kids on Campus – Bucks County Community College’s nationally accredited day camp program –  is offering more than 160 programs this summer for children ages five years to teens. 

‌Registration is ongoing for the popular day camps, all of which have an educational component. Topics range from athletics and sports, to crafts and academics. New camps include Video Production, Introduction to Model Railroading, Volleyball Academy, and Junior Lifeguarding.

Other popular programs are back, such as Kid Kuisine (pictured, above right), Mountain Biking and Disc Golf (pictured, left), Lego Animation (pictured, below right), Totally Skateboard, and Beginner’s Lacrosse.

‌Kids on Campus is nationally accredited by the American Camp Association.  ACA accreditation verifies that a camp has complied with up to 300 standards for health, safety, and program quality.  It assures parents that the camp has had a regular, independent safety audit that goes beyond regulations in most states. As part of the accreditation process, the ACA collaborates with the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other agencies to assure that practices reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation.

Camps are held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Newtown campus, located at 275 Swamp Rd., Newtown. Most are one week in length, giving a family the freedom to choose among many programs yet still have time for a family vacation. In cooperation with the Tri-Hampton YMCA, before- and after-camp care is available for an additional charge.   

A complete camp calendar and registration information is at the Kids on Campus web page. To register, call 215-968-8409.
