Founded in 2002, Play by Play Sports Broadcasting Camps provide the nation’s premier sports broadcasting experience for boys and girls ages 10-18. Alumni have gone on to succeed in broadcasting for ESPN, Bleacher Report, and various professional sports teams. Play by Play Camps has been featured on NPR, PBS as well as in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Boston Globe, and many other news outlets.

LIFE ON CAMPUS

College Life. From meeting your new roommate, walking around the beautiful campus and eating in the dining halls, you’ll get a taste of what life as a college student is really like. You’ll love the modern facilities, air-conditioned dorms, snack shops, WiFi and state-of-the-art athletic spaces.

International Experience. About 40% of students come from around the world to join us at JKCP each summer. Every year we hear how much students enjoy meeting people from all over the country and the world and how it opened their eyes to different parts of the globe.

Trips & Activities. One of the best parts of JKCP is the activities. Every evening is a planned event. Sometimes we stay on campus, and other nights we’ll travel to a local venue for an off-campus activity. Trips are offered every Saturday to regional destinations of your choice. And Sundays are for exploring the Philadelphia region.
