CAMP 2022 BEGINS

ABOUT CAMP JAMISON

Camp Jamison believes that summer camp changes lives! We believe that every child should get to experience sleeping in a cabin, hiking through the woods, and roasting marshmallows with friends. That is why since 2011 we created and maintain a one week overnight program available to all Philadelphia area children. Our mission is to offer a program that is diverse, inclusive, and most importantly affordable! In a city that is surrounded by so many struggles, Camp Jamison continues to allow children to have a fun filled week while also providing activities that strengthen their interpersonal and peace building skills that allow them to be community leaders back in their neighborhoods.

Camp Jamison

BECOME PART OF SOMETHING GREAT

Make new friends, try new activities and go on adventures. Arts and Crafts, canoeing, swimming in the Delaware River are all part of the plan! Camp Jamison is for youth ages 8-14. Our Counselor in Training Program is for youth ages 15 and older. Camp will be held at the Pocono Environmental Education Center.

ACTIVITIES

Camp Jamison is filled with opportunities for fun — from a breathtaking lake that’s perfect for canoeing, kayaking and scenic swimming, to spacious campground areas to enjoy daily sports!

WHAT OUR CAMPERS SAY...

JAMES M. TRAUGER MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

James M. Trauger was a founding Board Member of Camp Jamison. Camp Jamison would not exist without his support, guidance and endless advice.

Jim dedicated his life to summer camp. He knew that conversations were better when held on cabin porches and that a great week at camp can change a child’s life.

In memory of his life and to celebrate his impact on Camp Jamison we established the James M. Trauger Memorial Scholarship awarded to a worthy new camper every summer. Donate directly to his scholarship through our donation page.
