But isn't it too early for summer camp registrations?

That was my thought too, until I realized camps are actually starting to fill up already. Several places are open for registration, I'm highlighting four of them today:


Snapology is a hands-on STEAM education program teaching children ages 4-14 to think, build, and create using Robotics, Engineering, LEGO® bricks, and Technology. Their programs are designed to promote teamwork and inspire creativity through educational play.

Address: 1571 Manheim Pike, Lancaster, PA 17601

The Lancaster Science Factory

The schedule for the summer at The Lancaster Science Factory is packed with 25 camps for grades K – 8th. Parents have the option of signing their kids up for a morning, an afternoon, or packing a lunch and let the kids stay a full day. Some of the camps include basic coding and logic using fun technology, robots, and screen-free methods.

Address: 454 New Holland Avenue, Lancaster, PA 17602

Heritage Creek Farm Camp

Heritage Creek is a family-owned and operated family farm. A small-scale vegetable farm, the camp offers a variety of agriculturally-based programs for children and families. Care-taking of the environment, learning about food origin and producing food through sustainable growing practices are fundamental elements at Heritage Creek Farm Camp.

Address: 2126 Risser Mill Road, Mount Joy, PA 17552

Woodcrest Retreat

Woodcrest Retreat offers summer camps for kids, both overnight and day camp, as well as cabins, pavilions and an RV campground for retreat and family use.

Their programs are full of adventure and excitement and include plenty of outdoor activities, games, crafts, Bible lessons and splashing in the water.
