Voted #1 Summer Day Camp!

Summer 2021 update: Enrollment for Twirl Summer Camps and Summer Dance Intensive will be limited as if current social distancing standards will still be required. If government health officials relax or adjust social distancing requirements, waitlisted families in sold out camps will be contacted about openings. Twirl Summer Camps will have 2020 safety and sanitation protocols in place until the CDC and PA Department of Health change their guidelines. Please click the link below to review these procedures.

Registration for Twirl summer camps and dance intensive is now open!

Fun, fun, fun, and more fun! Twirl’s summer camps will get your child to forget their handheld devices as they get lost in the magic of dance-related activities. Each camp has its own unique theme and will emphasize different aspects of the performing arts. Camps include themed crafts and will end in a final performance where your rising star has an opportunity to showcase what they’ve been working on throughout the week.

My boys LOVE your camps and they are always a highlight to the summer!

Twirl Summer Camp Frequently Asked Questions

What does my child wear for camp?

In Twirl Summer Camps we move around a lot. For real. A LOT. Campers should wear clothes that they can move freely in. Dancewear is not required. Leotard tops, snug tank tops, or shirts that are long enough to be tucked in are recommended for camps that include acrobatics. Please no crop tops, half tops, or sports bras (with nothing worn over them). Street shoes are not allowed on Twirl dance floors so if campers don’t have dance shoes, bare feet are best because dance floors tend to be slippery in socks. If there are specific clothing or footwear requirements for a camp, the registered families will receive those details in a separate email.

The 4-10 age range looks pretty broad. How you manage that?

Because such a large number of kids that attend Twirl summer camps (it’s like one big party!), we divide campers into two groups mainly by age. Younger campers are grouped together and older ones are together as well. We will send an email out prior to the start date of the camp asking for requests to make sure that friends are in the same group. Also, siblings can be in the same group or separate depending on family preference.

My child doesn’t have much dance or acrobatic training, will this be a problem?

Twirl summer camps offer a super fun and welcoming environment for campers of all abilities. For camps that include acrobatics we work with individuals according to their skill level, and for all other camps, we make sure that choreography is cool, fun, and accessible for all dancers. It’s summertime… there’s no pressure!
