2020 Summer Camps Around Pittsburgh

Please note that this list is by no means exhaustive. Many sports organizations, churches, and arts groups offer their own Summer programs.

Camps can fill up quickly. Keep an eye on registration dates. Some have already started accepting applications. January-March are busy registration times. Early-bird discounts are sometimes available.

Some programs have scholarships or reduced rates for qualifying families.

Some camps are available by week-by-week; some have full-summer opportunities.

If you know of another interesting camp, please send a note to camps@ecspco.org so we can add it to this page. This list will be continually updated.
