Summer Camp

2022 Summer Camp Fun!

We had a great time during Summer Camp 2022 and we are excited to kick off Summer Camp 2023! You can check out the video listed to see how much fun we had last year! This fun and enriching camp is open to all kids 5-14 years of age. You don't even need to be a PA student to attend!

PA is offering a range of camp experiences this summer and we would love for you to be a part of this adventure! Camp will run for 10 weeks from June 5th through August 11th. We have a general camp each week that runs 8:30 am-3:30 pm Monday through Friday and specialized classes that can be added on. There will be weekly themes that include Olympics, Visual Arts, STEAM, and Exploration. In addition, PA will be offering two-week specialized camps that run in the afternoon, 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm.  Some classes will include Golf, Lacrosse, Robotics, Rocketry, Culinary Art, Theatre, Fencing, and more! 

Did we mention there is also aftercare available from 3:30 pm to  5:30 pm? Sign up now by selecting your child's age group from the links below.

There will be an option to only take the specialized courses in the afternoon or to add these courses along with the general camp.

Take a look at some of the awesome themes we have this year.
