Traditional Day Camp

Exploration and Self-Discovery for Students entering Grades 2 through 5

Tatnall’s Traditional Day Camp offers endless opportunities for exploration, self- discovery, innovation, and FUN for students entering grades 2 through 5. Through camp-wide assemblies, pool time, theme-specific STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) activities, social interaction, and teamwork, campers will have fun, make friends, and have just the right amount of learning to ward off the summer brain drain! Additionally, each camper will participate in swim lessons each morning, and free swim each afternoon.
