2024 PARPC Summer Camp



If there is one experience that’s sure to build memories, It’s PARPC’s 2024 Summer Camp!

By connecting to the interests of our campers, by providing an environment that’s nurturing, supportive and inclusive, and by making fun [and safety] the goal of every activity, PARPC offers children in completed grades Kindergarten through eighth grade, a special place that makes it all happen and then some.

Campers participate in a whole host of age-appropriate happenings such as sports, games, crafts and learning activities that boost self-esteem, inspire self-expression, facilitate friendships and build a sense of community.

Summer Camp is an integral part of the Palmyra Area Recreation and Parks Commission. In fact, it’s one of the many jewels in our programming, a status that speaks to the staff we choose for their ability to be nurturing, positive role models for our campers. And our caring doesn’t stop with the kids. We engage parents, keeping them up to date on camp fun thru our on-site message board, weekly newsletters and photos.

PARPC Summer Camp provides children with fun memories and friendships that last a lifetime. It’s the reason so many of our campers come back year after year.  Join us!
