This is how Philly kids play!

Dear Friends,

On behalf of Philly Play, welcome to the 2019 Philly Play Summer program website.  I encourage you to check back often to see new photos and videos from our summer camp activities!

Philly Play, which is a joint project with the Philadelphia Department of Parks and Recreation and Philadelphia City Council, is one of the projects that the Philadelphia Parks Alliance makes possible.  The Philadelphia Parks Alliance is dedicated to serving Philadelphia's public spaces. The mission of the Parks Alliance is to champion the public’s interest in outstanding parks, recreation, and open spaces - key to making Philadelphia a healthy, vibrant and sustainable city for all.  

Formed in 2013, the Philly Play project has grown from 15 recreation centers to 65 recreation centers with 1,600 kids, 75 staff and a combined total of over 48,000 hours of play coach facilitated, heart rate elevating playtime each summer at our city parks and recreation centers.

Projects like Philly Play make a big difference in the lives of kids and can help make Philadelphia's public spaces even more vibrant.  

I encourage you to learn more about this project and to engage in heart rate elevating play every single day!
