Rosemont College

1400 Montgomery Avenue Rosemont, PA 19010

Dates
Week of June 8th -Week of August 17th, 2020

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!
