Collegiate Summer Camp Series
Week-long camps hosted on the campuses of Philadelphia’s premier Colleges and Universities.
The Collegiate Summer Camp Series (CSCS) is a series of 1-week long camps hosted on the campuses of Philadelphia’s premier colleges and universities. These camps provide over 500 middle school aged young people from throughout the Philadelphia region with a dynamic experience. Each 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. camp day includes basketball skill-development and gameplay, an hour of academic enrichment, positive coaching and mentorship (including current or former college athletes), a healthy breakfast and lunch with nutrition information, and more. During the summer months, it is PYB’s intention to combat the summer slide and to provide our city’s boys and girls with a fun and safe environment to grow.
2019 CSCS Recap
“PYB’s Collegiate Summer Camp Series just keeps on getting better each year. As part of our mission to counter the effects of summer malaise that our city’s young people often experience, we executed a 7-week summer camp experience that served over 500 young people ages 9 through 14 from various communities across the Philadelphia region. Over the course of 7 weeks, we hosted our camps on the campuses of Jefferson University – East Falls Campus, the University of Sciences, St. Joseph’s University, Drexel University, Temple University, Friends’ Central School, and La Salle University. In comparison to past years of the CSCS, this year’s energy was the highest and most contagious. This may have been due to the continuity of our staffing model, our program team this summer was comprised of all individuals (1 exception) who have been a coach and/or mentor in one or more of our past core programs. This combination of experienced coaches and mentors coupled with a strong program schedule made for an engaging and exciting summer camp experience.” Kyle Lafferty, Program and Human Resources Manager
