Paradise Farm Camps has become the place to be in Chester County each summer. Our summer programs are divided into three camp groups; Junior Camp (ages 5-7), Day Camp (ages 8-12), and Teen Leadership Program (ages 13-16).  From our five year-olds, all the way up to our teens, every camper receives a positive outdoor experience.

Children are assigned to their groups based on age and grade, and each group has four instructors assigned to it.  Our instructors are a caring, diverse, and professional team of individuals.  The staff teach, guide, and participate with the children in all activities.  We maintain at least a 1:6 counselor/camper ratio at all times.  The majority of the staff are college students studying to be teachers or planning to serve youth in their careers.  Our entire team works hard to ensure your child will receive the very best care.DSC_0395

All day long, your child will be trekking through a day filled with fun and engaging activities.  Learning to fish, paddling a canoe, shooting a bow and arrow, mastering a swim stroke and scaling a rock wall are some of the valuable lessons your child may receive from us.

For more information on each camp group please follow the links below or contact the Program Director.

TREK

trekscan3 copyTo help children realize their potential the Day Camp created a mascot and philosophy, TREK. TREK is not only the name of our friendly, hiking giraffe mascot, but also is an acronym for the values we encourage daily. T.R.E.K. symbolizes: Teamwork, Respect, Enthusiasm, and Kindness.  TREK has become the ideal our campers adhere to while at camp. It is our intent that each child will learn to apply these traits not only at camp, but with their families, at school, and wherever they may be.
