Summer Camp

Welcome to Peoria Academy Summer Camp 2024!

 
 
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 9 weeks from June 3rd through August 9th. We have a general camp each week that runs 8:30 am-3:30 pm Monday through Friday and a specialized camp that can be added on in the afternoons. There will be an option to only take the specialized camp in the afternoon or to add these courses along with the general camp. Campers will participate in field trips every week that correspond with that week’s theme as well as swimming each week.
 
Did we mention there is also aftercare available from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm?
 
Take a look at some of the awesome themes we have this year.
