Summer Friends at Media-Providence Friends School

Summer Friends at MPFS ​​​was named a Talk of the Town Favorite by Delaware County News Network!

Summer Friends provides children ages 3-10 with an opportunity to participate in weekly thematic units taught by experienced counselors and certified elementary teachers. 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. 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. Onsite programs are complemented by special weekly presentations and field trips* to nature centers, zoos, parks, and other local events. Twice weekly, campers participate in instructional and recreational swimming* at Knowlton Swim Club with certified water safety instructors.
