Summer Camp Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy's popular summer camps are unique, age-specific programs held in beautiful Frick Park. Led by Parks Conservancy educators, these five-day camps encourage children and teens to learn, play, and grow in our city's biggest classrooms: parks!

All Parks Conservancy summer camps are based out of the Frick Environmental Center.

Each child may be registered for a maximum of one week of this camp each summer.
