Located on the beautiful 25 acre campus of Hill Top Preparatory School in Rosemont, Pennsylvania, we provide a number of programs that support social and life skills development for students entering Grades 2–12. We are a small campus where everyone knows everyone else's name.
A portion of our campers have been diagnosed with learning differences and have neurological profiles that include high functioning Asperger's Syndrome, a non-verbal learning disability and/or an attention deficit disorder.
Our camp is separated into three main programs: a traditional day camp for students entering Grades 2 through 9; a program focused on independent living skills for students in Grades 10 through post-graduate; and an active, problem-solving-based technology program for students in Grades 11 through post-graduate.

Our staff is made up of social workers, teachers, and college students who have experience working with students with learning disabilities. Our high level of experience, alongside our 3:1 camper-to-counselor ratio, allows us to support students in any situation.

A portion of our campers come to us funded through their school district as part of their Extended School Year Program (ESY). We are happy to work with your school district should your child qualify for ESY service.

We welcome the opportunity to show your family around Hill Top’s campus, a place where friendships begin. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
