Kids U!

Join us this summer for Kids U! where children and teens ages 5 to 18 can play, create and explore right here on our picturesque Doylestown campus!

DelVal's one-week specialty camps and academies allow students to collaborate and learn from experienced faculty, educators and industry professionals. Every camp is energetic and hands-on, immersing participants in learning and fun! Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Science and Engineering, Digital Media, Arts and Industry, Junior Equestrian Riding, Coding, App, Game Design, and the Life and Environmental Science areas offer campers a chance to develop their skills or explore new subjects.

Camp Basics

All camps meet on DelVal’s main campus in Doylestown at 700 E. Butler Ave. using the classrooms, labs and multi-purpose space. Each program runs for one week, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. through 3 p.m. Extended care options are available through our partner, the Central Bucks Family YMCA (see Kids U!'s parent page for enrollment forms). Campers each bring a brown bag lunch and eat as a group with their camp assistant.
