Camp Get-Along was founded as a summer camp by St. John the Evangelist Church in 1988 to provide a safe, supportive environment for children where they could develop skills to carry with them throughout their lives. Its main goal is to build a better generation for the future, one that is considerate, understanding, loving and responsible.
In 2007, the camp initiated Camp Saturday, an extension of the summer camp held on the first Saturday of each month September through June. The camp, for children ages 3-12, is held at the Church of the Crucifixion at 8th and Bainbridge Streets and operated with support from St. Peter’s Church.
Volunteers for the camp chaperone children and engage them in activities with their peers. Camp activities include drama exercises, singing, dancing arts and crafts, baking and the reading of Biblestories.
Volunteers are needed to:
- Lead and supervise the children
- Donate toward the purchase of breakfast, snack and lunch food; SEPTA tokens for transportation; or supplies for camp activities
