    Whether you’re planning to take the kids or want to have fun “shopping” camps with a friend, there’s a camp fair coming to NW Philly for you.

    Take the Kids: SCH Camp Fair

    This is Springside Chestnut Hill Academy’s 23rd annual camp fair. The event is free and open to the public and hosts nearly 100 different camp programs. Age ranges from preK through 12th grade, with arts to robotics to sports, and from local to sleep-away programs.

    While there, you and your children can watch videos, speak with camp personnel, take part in free activities and even take a lunch break in the cafe’. For a list of participating camps, click here.
