Registration begins in early March. It is announced on the PPS website as well as through communications sent home through schools. so you are encouraged to sign your child up early. Because we have a limited number of spots, we, unfortunately, are not able to serve every child who applies. We make our acceptance decisions based on serving children who are most at risk for summer learning loss. Typically this involves looking at a child's academic performance during the school year and his/her eligibility for free/reduced price meals, as well.

Where will my child attend camp?
The 2017 Summer Dreamers Academy camp sites are slated to be located in the North (serving North and West residents), South, and East, regions of the city. The 2017 Summer Dreamers Academy will operate in Pittsburgh King, Pittsburgh Carmalt and Pittsburgh University Prep. Children will attend the camp site that is closest to their home, based on a feeder pattern established by the child's legal address.
