Not-So-Lazy Summer Afternoon Camp

For the camper who can’t get enough — or the late sleeper — SRA brings you the Not-So-Lazy Summer Afternoon Camp. Bring a packed lunch and spend an extra two hours playing, crafting, and spending time with friends. Each week is centered around a theme. Campers may also enroll in Summer Day Camp or Sports Camp, or they may attend the afternoon session only.

SRA will not organize a “walking bus” to Swarthmore Swim Club in Summer 2024. SRA will make a counselor babysitter list available in late spring if you would like to make a private arrangement for your counselor.
