Summer Day Camp
Hempfield Township Parks and Recreation offers a fun and educational Summer Day Camp program for children ages 5 through 12. This is a 10-week camp beginning in June and running through August. Children may register for the entire 10-week program, on a week-by-week or partial-week basis. The hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with early drop-off and late pick-up options available for an additional fee per child. Each week is theme-specific with crafts, games, and special guests. Included in the cost of the camp is a free t-shirt for each camper, free pizza on Fridays, and free weekly field trips. For more information please read below or direct to the Parent Handbook.
Registration for Summer Day Camp begins the first Monday in May for Hempfield Township residents, and the second Monday in May for no-residents. Register for camp online. Registration/Payment is due by Friday of the week prior to attending camp.

Please be ready to show a photo I.D. to a staff member.

Camp Attire & Personal Items
All campers should wear comfortable clothing each day. Campers should wear athletic shoes (no sandals, open toed shoes, or flip-flops). Campers are not permitted to bringing personal items such as electronics, toys or items of value. The Hempfield Township Parks and Recreation Department is not responsible for loss or damage to personal items brought to camp.
Because camp activities are outdoors, your child is at risk for sunburn. Campers should arrive at camp with sunscreen already applied, as well as with additional sunscreen. We recommend campers use sunscreen with a SPF of at least 30.
