Camp Dates: July 10 – August 4, 2017


Children ages 5-12


Since 2002 WPCC has offered this summer arts and nature program that provides four weeks of meaningful experiences beginning right after the July 4th holiday.  Throughout the four weeks professional artists will work with the children on special projects that can  include visual arts, music, dance, theatre, and media arts.

West Park Cultural has been in partnership with the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center for ten years serving as our program venue with horticultural staff providing support to our artist/counselors as they weave nature into their arts projects.  In addition to art making the children have field trips, swimming and other recreational activities.


Camp site at the Horticulture Center in beautiful Fairmount Park, 100 N. Horticulture Drive, Philadelphia, PA 19131


The camp day runs from 8:00am to 3:00pm (some trip days may be extended days).  Extended time to 4:00pm is available for an additional cost of $10 per day.  Breakfast and lunch are provided.  Our staff to camper ratio is at least 1-5.


Tuition is $175 per week.  The cost of providing the camp exceeds our tuition.  The reduced fee is made possible through grants and contributions which also make it possible for us to never turn a child away for financial reasons.  A limited number of partial and full scholarships are available for those who qualify (download application below).

To reserve space(s) for your child(ren) register and pay here or print out the registration form below and send in to our mailing address with your deposit or payment in full. A one week $175 deposit is required at registration. For questions email or call 215/473-7810.
