At Camp Jamison, we believe that a summer camp experience has the power to change 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 opening in 2011, we’ve offered a one week, overnight summer camp experience to all Philadelphia area children.


Our mission is to offer a program that’s diverse, inclusive, and affordable. For kids growing up in a city with so many challenges, Camp Jamison offers a much-needed escape and reset. A reflective week full of activities to strengthen children’s interpersonal and peace-building skills to empower them to become community leaders.
