LifeSeeds Camp offers six sports. Campers may pick one sport per session to play:
Basketball*, Football, Lacrosse, Quickball, Soccer, or Tennis
*Basketball is offered to children 8 years and older.
We will offer 7 weeks of camp for 2023.
The first three weeks of camp will be held at Jenkintown High School and the last four weeks will be held at Arcadia University in Wyncote, PA. Please look for posted signs for arrival/drop-off/pick-up at Jenkintown H.S. and Arcadia University’s Kuch Athletic and Recreation Center.
Not necessarily. Age is a consideration, but more important factors are the child’s size and ability level.
We encourage campers to bring their own equipment to avoid cross-contamination and unnecessary sharing of equipment. This includes tennis racquets, lacrosse sticks, gloves, and balls. IF a camper needs a racquet or stick, we will provide that piece of equipment, and it will be designated for use only by one camper for the week. In all cases, staff will sanitize and clean equipment multiple times throughout each day.
Label ALL equipment clearly!
We do not offer or sell lunch. The only exception is Friday, when we provide pizza for everyone in camp. We still recommend providing a snack and a drink.
No. We recommend that campers bring their lunches in small coolers.
Campers are only allowed to switch their sport up until the Saturday before their registered camp week.
Our staff does a great job of creating an environment that is both challenging and rewarding for children of all levels. The result is that every child, whether they are inexperienced or a superstar, enjoys their experience at LifeSeeds. (Of course, all campers are superstars!)
Yes, with approval. Family and friends are welcome to visit LifeSeeds, but MUST call or email to be pre-approved. All guests will be required to wear a face mask.
We will implement staggered arrivals and pick-ups to help minimize congestion at the drop-off area. For Jenkintown High School, drop-off and pick-up will take place at the back of Jenkintown Elementary School, which is accessed off of Greenwood Ave and turning down Highland Ave. At Arcadia University, drop-off/pick-up will take place by entering thru the Kuch Athletic and Recreation Center off of Church and Easton Rd.

◉ 8:50-9:00am: campers with the last name beginning A-K
◉ 9:00-9:10am: campers with the last name beginning L-Z
▶︎ Staggered departure/pickup times:
◉ 2:50–3:00pm: campers with the last name beginning A–K
