Summer Camp 2023

Looking for a fun, unique summer camp experience for your child? The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum is hosting STEAM-focused summer camps for children ages  6 – 12.  Camps combine science, technology, engineering, art, and math along with local history. We offer day camps for children ages 6 – 12. Our camps are packed full of educational content, hands-on activities, and loads of fun! All camps include behind-the-scenes tours, interactive guided tours of our collection and exhibits, and rides on several of our fully-restored antique trolleys. Registration opens Friday, November 18th, for members and Friday, November 25th, for the general public!
