Summer Camps Around Pittsburgh – June 2020 Update

In January 2020, ECS PCO volunteers compiled a list of summer camps in the Pittsburgh area. It has been updated to reflect cancellations and modifications that have been made as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Note: Summer camps may change their plans without notice. Please do not rely on this list. Contact the organization directly for their updated policy.

If you know of other camps or summer opportunities that are happening in the Pittsburgh area or if you have any updates to these listings, please send a note to so we can update this page.
