Summer Camps

We like summer so much that we start planning for it nearly a year ahead of time! That results in four fabulous summer programs for preschoolers and school-age children and a live performing arts experience geared to older kids.

School-Age Summer Camps

Our summer camps for students entering grades 1-5 are all about hands-on learning and lots of fun – and they fill up quickly.

Summer Performing Arts Camp

This engaging camp culminates in two live performances of a well-known musical. It’s perfect for students entering grades 6-12 with an interest in theater, stage production or the arts.

LEARN Program

NEW to The Learning Lamp in 2014 is the LEARN Program. Formerly operated by Pitt-Johnstown, The Learning Lamp now works in partnership with the university to offer the popular summer program for students entering grades 3-8. Same 5-day, full-day schedule, same location on the Pitt Johnstown campus, new lineup of topics taught by PA certified teachers. Attendees will spend each day engaged in a variety of classes that challenge their creativity, put their scientific prowess to the test, improve their use of technology and exercise their bodies and imaginations.
