Summer camps are an excellent way for we as parents to aid the growth of our kids’, particularly social skills. I love summer camps and it’s a time of the year I always treasure. Pittsburgh area offers plenty of fascinating places for summer camps. The numerous nature parks, art, and cultural centers make us spoilt for choice on where to enjoy the summer thrill. Let us look at some of the upcoming 2018 summer camps in Pittsburgh and as parents, we can choose the best one for our kids.
Monologues and Movement-Summer Camp
Prime Stage has organized a week-long theater camp for teens aged between 13 and 16 years from June 18 – 22. It’s a perfect camp for our kids to explore their creativity and nurture theatrical skills. Our teens will be exposed to classes by professional performing artists who will teach dancing, vocal and acting skills. I feel this as a great opportunity for our child to build their self-confidence by learning to express themselves.
Pittsburgh CLO Academy Summer Camps
Pittsburgh CLO Academy offers a plethora of camps this summer that our kids of varied ages can be a part. One of them is Disney’s Peter Pan Jr tailored for children in grades 1-4. Here, our kids will experience mad fun as they harness their acting skills while taking part in the adaptation of one of the most treasured Disney’s Cartoons. The camp will run for two weeks between the dates of June 18-29 and July 16-27.
Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy’s Summer Camps
I believe children need to feel and appreciate the beauty of our nature right from a tender age. The Kinder nature camp at the wonderful Frick Park will allow our kids to learn, work and play doing activities such as planting, taking nature walks during the event-packed five days. It runs between June and July.
Children’s Museum Pittsburgh Summer Camps
CMP week-long Art camp on June 25-29 is another chance for our kids to discover hidden artistic talents. Tailored for children between the ages of 8 to 12. I love the thrilling activities participants will be involved in like printmaking, fiber art, ceramics, and painting. These will help our child learn valuable artistic skills.
Pittsburgh Center for the Arts Summer Camps
PF/PCA presents an Art camp from the ages of 4 to 18, where we parents can give our kids the exposure they need to develop skills in fine arts, film-making, and photography. I like the diverse range of mediums camper will explore under the guidance of the professional teaching artists. In addition, the Youth Intensives camp is another intensive event our high school kids can attend. The two-week event will offer great encouragement to unleash their creativity. Experienced artists and instructors will come in handy to assist them to produce unique and original work while imparting valuable skills and techniques to campers.
Perv Moms – Summer Camp
Pittsburgh’s 1st edition of camp dedicated for perverted mothers. This is for adult women only and it features all kind of activities that help mothers with issues to deal with their problems. We are not yet sure how it will work and what form of camping it will be, but we feel we needed to mention it.
