School-Age Summer Camp 2023, June 20 – August 25: “Under the Sea”

Brightside Academy offers engaging summer camp programs for school-age and preschool children from June through August. Our summer camp program provides a variety of hands-on experiences that encourage critical thinking, problem-solving, innovation, creativity, and collaboration. Enriching teacher-led projects stimulate child discovery through small and large group activities. Summer is one of the most exciting times in our calendar, and every year our campers and staff have a blast!

  • Summer camp backpack*
  • Free nutritious meals and snacks daily
  • Field trip costs (transportation, food, etc.)*

 Registration must be complete by May 12 to ensure a camp t-shirt.

The summer camp program fee must be paid by May 12.

*Applicable for school-age summer camp only


Children will follow a S.T.E.A.M. approach to learning and activities that uses science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

During the summer-long program children will explore the oceans, learning about oceanic ecosystems, underwater animals, and ways that seaside cultures engage with the ocean.


Children will experience engaging, fun-filled days that include self-discovery and hands-on learning, active play and rest, and substantial time outdoors.


Throughout the summer, school-age children will have multiple opportunities for field trips that are both fun and enhance classroom learning. We are finalizing the trip schedule for 2023. Below is a list of fun trips from previous years:

Pittsburgh summer camp trips: Riverview Park, Phoenix Movies, Carnegie Science Center, Romp & Roll, and Swissvale Arcades

Philadelphia summer camp trips: Thunderbird Lanes, Decades Dance Party, Liberty Bell/U.S. Mint, Mann Music Center, and Herron Playground and Sprayground


Preschool summer camp will be from June 26 – August 25 (this year’s preschool summer camp theme is also “Under the Sea!”).

Preschool summer camp includes thematic hands-on projects and lesson plans. 

We look forward to having your child in our program this summer. Call 877-868-2273 for additional program details!
