Summer Programs at The Ellis School provide experiences that enable campers to make connections through collaboration, friendship, and community. Campers will cultivate creative thinking as they engage in hands-on activities packed full of summer FUN! 

Coed Kid Camps allows girls and boys ages 3-9 to focus on a plethora of activities that relate to their week’s overarching theme. Campers will try new activities daily in a safe environment, all while making new friends and having fun! All campers are taught and supervised by experienced education professionals.

To add excitement and educational value to our programs, Coed Kid Camps welcomes special guests from local organizations to campus each summer! Visits are pre-scheduled and often include fun activities and exclusive presentations. Past visitors have included the Pittsburgh Zoo & Aquarium, Humane Animal Rescue of Pittsburgh, Mad Science, Stories Like Me, the Moonshot Museum, and more!

Full-day camp hours are 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day for all sessions.

Changemakers Lab is a summer institute that brings together girls entering grades 5–10 to collaborate on interdisciplinary real-world projects in an exploratory space. Over the course of the summer, girls will roll up their sleeves, get messy, and think creatively as they work to bring about positive change and explore topics such as the arts, ecology, STEM, and more. Five different Labs are offered throughout the summer. Each Lab focuses on a specific project and runs Monday through Friday for either one or two weeks.

An off-site excursion into the community will be part of each Lab. Participants will engage in activities guided by our community partners and the Changemakers Lab lead instructor.
