Summer is a unique time for students to grow. After the school year ends, a good summer camp or class can give your child the opportunity to discover new passions, hone existing talents, forge new friendships and tackle personal challenges.
Shady Side Academy has offered generations of Pittsburgh families fun, flexible and affordable summer programs. Our campuses in Fox Chapel and Point Breeze play host to a wealth of day camps, focus camps, sports camps and summer school classes for elementary, middle and high school students. High-energy programming, combined with a knowledgeable and experienced staff make SSA Summer programs unlike any other in the region! New this year, we are offering flexible one-week enrollments at all campuses as well as a seventh week for Day Camp Discovery!
The SSA Summer DifferenceWe embrace every child's unique story. Our goal is to understand, support and realize the potential in every child. Counselors and teachers maintain open lines of communication with parents to ensure we know your child's hopes and dreams. Our warm community provides a safe, supportive environment for kids to take risks.
We offer nearly 50 different camps and classes. From day camps to sports camps to summer school, you can build a summer schedule customized to your child's individual interests and your family's needs.
We have outstanding facilities. Most programs take place on our 130-acre Senior School campus in Fox Chapel, which offers amazing athletic and arts facilities. We also offer camps on our 35-acre Middle School campus in Fox Chapel and our seven-acre Junior School campus in Point Breeze.
