Safari & Teen Camp

The Arc of Chester County’s Camp Safari is a special place for children between age 4 to 12 to experience outdoor activities regardless of disability. Teen Camp is open to teens age 13 to 19.

Both camps offer:
  • New experiences and fun with peers
  • Activities including fishing, canoeing, swimming, sports, crafts, and nature study
  • Respite for family members and caregivers

Teen Camp and Camp Safari are both week-long summer day camps that operates from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Each camper has a one-on-one teen volunteer or an Arc Staff member. All staff and volunteers are supervised by the Family Support Services Manager of Community Based Services.
