This year Dall'Inizio DaySchool will be offering summer camp experiences for preschool and school-age children. Our camp is a science-based camp that will introduce children to different concentrations in science and expose the fact that we are surrounded by science everywhere in our daily lives. There will be loads of hands on experience to help foster a love of science in our campers! Check out our flyers and week descriptions available for download below. Camp will begin on June 12th with the last day of camp being on August 11th.
We have 9 weeks of adventures lined up for our campers! We will learn about Physics, Geology, Earth Science, Archaeology, Animals, Agriculture and so much more! We will be out and about every day exploring the gifts of nature by visiting our local parks and nearby State Parks! Our school age campers will have field trips like the Pittsburgh Zoo and Carnegie Science Center, Knoebels Grove, Millbrook Marsh and many more!
Our camp hours are 8am-4pm with before and after care provided at no extra cost between the hours of 7am-5:30pm. Campers will need to bring a packed lunch daily as we will be out in the field. Please note that some of the field experiences will require an additional fee.
Priority enrollment will be given to children who enroll for the whole summer or most of the summer camp weeks. Enrollment information and forms will be available soon for download below. ELRC and Penn State subsidies accepted!

While our summer camp is science based, we are also committed to encouraging our campers to be the change they want to see in the world! Our program strives to teach our campers how to be respectful, take responsibility, and to build self-esteem and self-confidence, not only in ourselves but in our fellow campers as well. We have an all-inclusive policy, in that no one plays alone, no one eats alone, etc. unless they wish to.
