About Camp

About Camp

Nestled in the woods right outside Philadelphia, Shelly Ridge Resident Camp allows you to bring your creative ideas to life. Specializing in small age-specific single-themed sessions, Shelly Ridge Resident Camp is ideal for both the first-time resident camper and those looking for a week with a more focused theme. With programs ranging from culinary exploration to tracking the night sky, there is something for everyone! You will be amongst the first to enjoy our newly built amenities as you stay in our air-conditioned lodge and participate in all that our activity center has to offer (some activities are grade-dependent). Additionally, you will enjoy challenging yourself on the low ropes course (fourth grade and above), aiming high with archery, swimming daily, cooking breakfast with your new friends, experiencing a variety of traditional and non-traditional camp dining experiences and much more. Wow Factors: Activity Center, Indoor Climbing Wall, and Lodge.
