Established in the late 1920’s, Friends' Central Summer Programs offers participants a variety of enriching opportunities consistent with the Quaker tenets of Friends' Central School. These tenets include a commitment to diversity while respecting the individual; the stimulation of personal growth; and the building of our summer camp community according to the values of peace, equality, simplicity, service and integrity.Friends' Central's Summer Programs have something for everyone. Our rich and varied summer programs, filled with endless fun and excitement, are available to children ages 3 and up. The same quality of excellence that marks Friends' Central as one of the outstanding independent schools in the Philadelphia area also characterizes our summer programs, all of which are managed by Friends' Central teachers who are invested in their school community and are committed to providing a happy, enriching, and safe camp experience for every child.
Friends' Central School is recognized for its friendly, welcoming atmosphere and the positive interactions between children and faculty. These characteristics, as well as fair play, acceptance, and respect for the individual, are emphasized in our summer programs. All summer employees are oriented and guided in following the Quaker practices for which the school is known.
