Where Your Friends Are

Business Description
We hope you agree that at Willow Grove, we really do offer your child "more to do". Summer fun at Willow Grove Day Camp is the chance to participate in favorite activities, trying new things, and making new friends. More than just "more to do", we think Willow Grove Day Camp also gives campers "more to be". We take very seriously our role in meeting children's developmental needs. So we instill a spirit in our staff that makes them conscious of the real affect they have for campers; building courage, sensing community and taking responsibility, all in the fun-filled atmosphere of camp. Some people expect that summer camp is basically about cooling off in the pool and gaining some new sports skills. Those things definitely happen here, but we do all we can to go way beyond the expected; to give every camper "more to be more to do". * ACA Accredited We are proud of our accredited status in the American Camp Association. Our status is your assurance about the credentials of the summer camp you choose. To best promote high professional practices, ACA undertakes an exhaustive program of camp accreditation. This evaluation process assures you our compliance with over 300 aspects of camp administration, particularly those related to program quality and the health and safety of campers and staff. * Willows Pre-School - Day Camp * Junior Camp * 4-6 Years * Middle Camp * 7-9 Years * Senior Camp * 10-12 Years * Cit/Teen Camp

The Willow Grove Day Camp Philosophy Since 1955, Willow Grove Day Camp has carefully designed a camp experience that includes the activities that kids enjoy most and uses them to encourage personal accomplishment and group cooperation. Campers build self-confidence and develop positive attitudes by trying and succeeding at diverse new activities. By interacting with their peers, campers also learn the importance of participating with others and building successful relationships. We support and celebrate each camper's abilities and encourage our campers to be active, proud, courageous, responsible and cooperative. We also understand that these goals are best accomplished in a friendly, safe, comfortable and clean environment. At Willow Grove Day Camp there is "more to do, more to be".

Scary Director

I made an appointment and arrived to take a tour for my 4 year old. A man named Larry strutted himself about, ranting about everything from politics to the detail on his car. I didn't understand why were were taking a car to tour the camp on a nice day, as my 4 year old would not be driven to activities. Larry said we should see the camp for older kids ""for the future"". He pointed to various buildings telling me my son would NOT be here, NOT be there, not not not... I said I'd like to see where my son will be. Larry launched into a tirade about how he's given this tour for over 30 years and no one ever asked him to do it any other way, and he didn't actually know what a 4 year old's day would be like, unless I had a ""roster"". I handed him the papers I was given, he said there was no roster, and drove us back to the office, bellowing and complaining. I got out of the car when he did, and said I'd like to sit down in the office. He snorted out ""Well I'm leaving"". Off he went. Left with ""Linda"" who turns out to be office staff, I asked who this man was. Oh, she said, He's the Director. !!!!!! ooooookaaaaay.
