Summer Camp

Movement, drama, fitness, dance technique, creativity and more for kids ages 5-12!

When school’s out for summer, we’ve got you covered! Whether your kid has an interest in dance & theater, or just lots of energy to burn, we’ve got a fantastic new day camp to keep them moving. 

Every camp day will include dance and drama sessions, outdoor activities, games and art projects. Along with learning technique, campers will work on developing discipline, confidence, social skills and musicality in this structured, fun-filled program. On Fridays, the kids will show off what they’ve learned throughout the week at an informal 30-minute presentation.

Each week will have a unique theme, so you can sign up for multiple camps and still get a different experience. The instructional sessions will be designed for all levels — perfect for kids who are new to the performing arts as well as those coming back to learn more.

Summer Camp FAQ

If your question isn’t here, find even more studio info on our Policies page or drop us a line and we’ll be happy to help!

Click on a question below to show the answer.

What should campers wear?

Anything comfortable for movement will be perfect. It’ll be hot in the summer, so you may want to send an extra t-shirt and shorts in case we get sweaty doing dance fitness or running around outside. If your kids already have ballet or jazz shoes, those will come in handy but socks will work just fine, too. There are plenty of changing rooms at the studio. 

Can my child register for specific classes instead of the full summer camp?

Potentially. If there’s a specific style of dance you’re looking for, please contact us. We’ll let you know when we will be offering that during the camp day and we can figure out a single-class rate for your child. 

What’s the COVID policy?

To keep our everyone safe, we have implemented the following policies: 

 

  • All staff are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. We strongly recommend that all campers be vaccinated as well and will keep note of vaccine records during registration. If we have campers with known high risk medical conditions, we may ask any campers who are not vaccinated against COVID to wear face masks indoors so that everyone can feel safe and comfortable. 
  • Kids will be asked to regularly wash hands thoroughly, and will not be allowed to share food. Our staff will disinfect all tables and high-touch surfaces on a daily basis.
  • Face masks will be optional for all vaccinated participants. Note: this could change if case numbers increase and the city reverts to its former requirement for indoor masking.  
  • If a student tests positive for COVID-19, they will not be able to come to the studio for the required quarantine period (currently 5 days per CDC guidelines) or until a negative test. 
  • If a student tests positive after coming to class, contact us immediately. This way, we can help trace and contain any potential outbreaks. Since all of our school age and adult programs require proof of vaccination, other participants will not need to quarantine per federal health department protocol. But we will still keep everyone informed so that everyone can be on the lookout for break-through cases. Any communication about cases will always be kept anonymous.
  • We ask everyone – parents, students and teachers – to help us reduce the spread of illness by staying home if you’re not feeling well, especially if you have symptoms that could be indicative of COVID-19.
What's the refund policy?

Philly Dance Fitness services are non-refundable. However, we understand that it can be difficult to figure out summer plans in time to take advantage of early bird registration deals, so we have come up with the following refund policy specific to camp purchases:

  • Camp registration fees are non-refundable.
  • If you need to cancel camp registration, you must notify us by May 1 in order to receive a refund to your credit card (minus the $50 registration fee). Cancellations should be emailed to info@phillydancefitness.com.
  • If you opt out of camp between May 1 – June 1, the amount paid can be credited to your account to use toward a different service or product. No refunds or credits will be issued for cancelations after June 1.
  • If Philly Dance Fitness must cancel a week of camp due to low registration or an unforeseen emergency, you will be refunded in full.
Can I exchange camp weeks?

If space is available, you may request to switch camp weeks at no charge up until June 1.
