Specialty Day Camps

#1 in Specialty Camps!

At Lavner Camps, we are excited to offer some of the most exciting and “cutting edge” Specialty Day Camps in the Philadelphia PA Metro Area, New Jersey, New York, Manhattan, Washington D.C., Towson Maryland, and St. Louis, Missouri!

Specialty Camps allow campers to specialize in one area of interest, like in Tennis Camp, Robotics Camp or Culinary Arts Camp, for a week or more!

Lavner Camps is accredited by the American Camp Association.

With camps in sports, technology, the arts, and more, we have a wide range of highly focused camps for your child/children.  Our Specialty Day Camps allow campers to select one camp for the entire week (or multiple weeks) and focus their interests on a specific subject for maximum learning and improvement. Some of our camps offer AM and PM sessions, providing campers with the option to attend half day or to combine one camp in the AM session and one camp in the PM session.  Campers may also book private lessons with instructors during early arrival and extended day.  To emphasize a commitment to learning, these one-on-one opportunities are sure to enhance camper learning experiences.

Working within the Lavner Philosophy of expertly designed curriculum, excellent instructors and staff, personal attention to campers, great locations, and attention to safety, our camps create a unique atmosphere of learning, friends, and fun!  While our camps are tons of fun, our curriculum is structured so that each camper is challenged and skill sets are improved.  Campers are able to meet other campers and instructors with similar interests and engage in a passionate learning atmosphere that is fun and exciting.

Our goal is to have our campers improve their skill sets, build self-confidence, establish friendships and have a great time at camp!  Our methods are proven, and our campers succeed at camp and gain life skills for the future.

Experience the difference with Lavner Camps!
