Pennsylvania is often referred to as PA. It is known for its scenery — its mountainous western, northwestern and central portions — and its historical importance in American history, with sites such as Independence Hall where the Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution were drafted. Sleepaway summer camps are an essential part of growing up. If you’re lucky, your childhood was spent at one of these camps. Such an experience is not only memorable but also incredibly fun. However, it can be challenging to find just the right one for your child to attend every summer.
Pennsylvania may not be the first state that comes to mind when you're looking for a great summer camp for your child, but the Keystone State has some pretty good options when it comes to sleepaway camps. While there are many camps in Pennsylvania, here are five great ones in the state where the fun never stops!
Our life is full of rich experiences. These experiences are often with family, friends and colleagues. Events with people are at times more important than the event itself. The Ferrwood Music Camp was created in part to provide these memorable experiences with others during what is normally a very busy time of year for parents with children entering or returning to school. Our camp was created to enhance the lives of these families by providing events that are geared towards fun, activities that are educational, memorable, and flexible in nature.
