Join camp director Lori Litchman for one or two weeks of playing, creating, exploring, learning, and constructing for children ages eight to twelve. Camp runs from 9am-3pm every day and takes place outdoors in the gardens at Wyck, 6026 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia. All materials are provided, and children need to bring a lunch and drink. While there will be structured activities, there will be plenty of time for independent exploration and imaginative play.
August 2 – 6
Native American Life: Have you ever wondered what life was like for Native Americans? During this week of Wyck’s camp, you’ll find out! Some of the activities include making bows and arrows, beading, making clay pots, face painting, building structures out of found items, and Native American games and toys.
August 9 – 13
Colonial American Life: Life as an early American child was much different than what we are used to. During this week of camp, we’ll explore what it was like to grow up during this time. Some activities include making toys and playing with early American toys (like stilts and potato sacks!), making jam and tea, soap whittling, and how to tie knots.
