A Fun Place for Kids When Schools are Closed!

There is no need to despair when area schools are closed. YMCA of the Pines offers School’s Out at Camp on our 800-acre property for all students, regardless of whether a child is enrolled in our regular School’s Out Program or not.

School’s Out at Camp operates from 7 am to 6 pm, includes breakfast, lunch and a snack and is less than $5 per hour for School’s Out participants. Your child will be supervised by professional staff and will enjoy a full day’s worth of fun and exciting activities, including arts & crafts, nature hikes, group games, sports and much, much more.

Registration for September, October and November School’s Out at Camp dates is currently open. To register for School’s Out at Camp, use this link. Then sign in or create an account, click “Register Online,” select “2019 Year-Round Camp and Family Programs” and then select “School’s Out at Camp Fall 2019”.


Participants may be dropped off/picked up at the Ockanickon Dining Hall as early as 7 am and picked up as late as 6 pm. Activities start at 9 am. and vary based on weather and availability. (Please have your child prepared for an outside activity – rain, snow or shine.)

The School’s Out at Camp program only operates during selected scheduled school closings. The program will not operate for any unscheduled school closing. The School’s out at Camp program is limited to 45 participants/day.

Based upon recent COVID-19 developments, along with Federal, State, and CDC mandates and recommendations on gathering sizes, we will NOT be offering School’s Out at Camp during the time in which schools are closed (they’re currently slated to re-open April 20, 2020). This includes during the Spring Break period in which School’s Out at Camp was originally scheduled: April 10, and then the week of April 13 – 17.
We will process a full refund for those who have registered and paid for Spring Break School’s Out at Camp days. The refunds will be processed over the next 3 weeks. We appreciate your patience during this time.
