Middle School Summer Camps

 

 

The Lenfest Center is a safe, positive place for youth and families in the Hunting Park neighborhood of North Philadelphia. We strive to offer a variety of educational, athletic and life-skills opportunities for children in grades K-12.

Our Mission

We strive to improve the physical, mental and emotional health of youth in grades K-12 in the Hunting Park community. By offering structured and innovative education, athletic and enrichment programming we will prepare young people to be active contributors to their community.

 

Our Vision

We envision a Hunting Park community in which all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential, all families have the resources to strengthen themselves, and all neighbors are invested in the health of their community.

 

Our Goal

We aim to be one of the premier youth development facilities in Philadelphia. We are committed to helping young people achieve academic, athletic and social success. We will work to produce young men and women with character, integrity, and a sense of responsibility for themselves, their families and their community.
