One-week specialty camps enable you to customize your child’s summer activities to suit their interests and your family’s schedule.

There’s something for every child, with specialty camps in two locations—Squirrel Hill and the Family Park in Monroeville. All camps are from 9 am to 3:30 pm and include lunch unless otherwise indicated. Campers engage in their specialty with instructors for the greater portion of each camp day, allowing time for a recreational swim period. Snacks are included daily, as well as transportation from central locations for camps in Monroeville. Before- and after-care is available.

Already-registered J&R Day Campers can switch to a Specialty Camp in Monroeville at no additional charge through June 1. After June 1 there will be a $50 add-on fee.
