Summer Camp Serving New Hope, PA

The charming township of New Hope is a scenic borough in Bucks County, PA and is located near the Delaware River and only has a population 2,162. New Hope is a popular destination and Main street is often crowded. New Hope is a great place to raise a family and many people are moving in the area. This means many new children and families in the area will be looking for a great place to send their kids to summer camp. If you’re one of those people, look no further than Black Bear Lake Day Camp! We’re a local camp just a quick drive from New Hope PA. Air Conditioned Transportation is available from Bucks County, (Yardley Park & Ride specifically.)

At Black Bear Lake, we pride ourselves on giving kids a summer camp experience they’ll always remember. When kids attend our camp, they are attending the camp of choice. Our daily schedule allows them to design and create their own schedules from plenty of exciting, age-appropriate activities. Our philosophy is to give your child a place to grow, learn new skills, have fun, and make new friends.

We serve kids from Pre-K through Grade 10, so there’s something for everyone to love at Black Bear Lake! Our campers are divided into different age divisions.
The highlight of every camper’s day, though, is the electives. Part of our Progressive Program, campers choose from over 70 electives to build their weekly schedule. From sports to arts & crafts to academics, we have a slew of electives on offer for kids to build their schedules. When you give campers the choice on how they want to spend their day, they embrace camp much more than being told what to do with their time.


Besides our programs and electives, Black Bear Lake offers delicious food every day to all campers. Every meal is well balanced, nutritious, and kid friendly. And, we can accommodate our menu for campers with food allergies! Some favorite meals are Hoagie Day, Pizza, and Mac and Cheese.

Our older students can go on special off-camp trips to the local area! Our 9th and 10th graders ( Staff Enrichment Program) have weekly trips PLUS 1 overnight. The trips change every summer but can include the beach, shops, and other fun activities.

And, we have Special Events every week that the entire camp participates in! Some past favorites have been College Days, Color War, and Filthy Friday. They’re a surprise every week and it’s always a great place for campers to come together, bond, and make new friends.
