Rosemont College

1400 Montgomery Avenue Rosemont, PA 19010

Dates
June 10th - August 23rd, 2019 (No camp on July 4th)

Rosemont College’s suburban campus is a wonderful location for summer camp, and its sprawling green hills and collegiate stone buildings provide a lovely backdrop when we travel outside for lunch, wet-felt, or an impromptu camp game or bake cupcakes. We host our camps in Kaul Hall, just off of Wendover Road. Both Handwork and Machine Sewing & Fashion Camps are held in a large, comfortable, air-conditioned space.

NEW This year, we are proud to offer Rosemont College as our flagship maker space.  We believe the more kids make the more they learn.  What better way to learn than to hammer and nail your own projects, stitch a beautiful wall hanging, and make your own clothes. Coming January 15th, check out all the innovative programs we have in store at Rosemont this summer with even the new options from our menu based plan (coming out on January 15th).

Also, if you need the extra time before camp starts and after camp ends, before and after care is available all summer long!  Easy to sign up, add right onto to your online registration!

Join The Handwork Studio, as we explore the sweet world of candy making, cupcake decorating, cake pops, and cookies! Each week is themed so that campers can indulge themselves in the joy of learning to make each yummy treat.  Kids will dip, frost, bake, and decorate.  We'll end the week helping campers to sew (on a sewing machine) their own "goodie bag" in which to take their creations home. We will nibble as we go; however, we encourage responsible snacking and send most of the treats home at the end of the week to share with family and friends.

We are excited to have Wilton Brands sponsor our Sweets, Treats and Eats Camp by providing the supplies, materials, and goodies coming home!  Since 1929, Wilton has been the worldwide leader in cake decorating products and education and we are honored that they have chosen to work with us to provide an exceptional experience for your camper.
