Camp Location: Most in-person camps will be held at the Temple University Ambler campus, located at 580 Meetinghouse Road, Ambler, PA 19002. Some camps will be held at the Temple University Main Campus, located at 1801 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19122. Please be sure to check the camp's location prior to registration.
Hours of Operation: In-person camps are offered as full-day camps, from 9 AM to 4 PM. Camper may be dropped off as early at 8:30 AM. Camp ends at 4 PM but parents have until 5 PM to pick up campers. We regret that we are not able to provide additional before care or after care hours.

Summer Education Camps: A Brief History
Temple University has been offering Summer Education Camps since 1989 at our Ambler campus location. Summer camps are a fun-filled approach to academic subjects in small-group settings. More recently, we've been able to expand some summer camp programming to Temple's Main and Center City campuses. Summer Education Camps provide a wonderful opportunity for youth to learn about a specific area of interest, experience a college campus, meet new friends, and have fun at the same time. Our summer camp instructors are primarily local, area schoolteachers, or professionals in their field, who enjoy sharing their passions and enriching the lives of children through educational opportunities.
