Watch Your Child Grow and Thrive at Snapology Programs!
Children learn from experienced teachers who know how to engage and inspire them.
We provide an environment where kids become confident in their abilities as they step out of their comfort zones and try new things.
Your children will meet and interact with other children, build social skills and make new friends.
Topics kids love
Our programs focus on topics your kids love and are interested in, making learning more relevant and engaging for them.
When children are actively engaged with materials they have a more immersive experience, which promotes the natural learning process.
At Snapology kids learn about science, technology, engineering, and math, preparing them for the future.

No Snapology Camp at the Derry Township Community Center the week of July 4th
We love Snapology! My son has attended camps, birthdays and often enjoys doing the open play as well. He always has the BEST time and wants to know when he can go back. The staff at the center are friendly, professional and attentive. I love going in and seeing the creative LEGO displays and learning about the fun, new camps they have coming up. The center is clean and maintained very well. I definitely recommend this place!
Snapology of Lancaster is wonderful! Becka is so kind and helpful! The staff is warm and welcoming! My kids are returning for Summer camp this season because they had such a blast last year.
My son has attended several programs at Snapology, from single day ones to week long summer camp experiences and has loved them all. The staff is friendly and professional, I always feel confident that I’m leaving him in good hands. We would recommend Snapology to anyone!!Loved it!
Gift Cards Available!
A gift card can be applied to Summer Camps, After School Programs, and Interactive Play Sessions. Great for grandparents and those who want to give the gift of an experience, but aren’t sure about scheduling.
Frequently Asked Questions
Still have unanswered questions? Text or Call us at 717-719-4154
What topic or themes do you offer?
For a full list of themes see above.
How far in advance do I need to reserve a spot?
We recommend that you reserve your spaces now. Last summer some of our camps sold out FAST and we anticipate the same happening this year. We had a long waiting list!
What days and times do you offer?
We have morning (9-12), afternoon (1-4) and full day (9-4) sessions. Mix and match to suit your family’s needs.
Camps are Monday through Friday.
Do you provide lunch?
We do not provide lunch. If you are staying for a Full Day camp you will need to pack a NUT FREE non-perishable lunch (or in a cooler lunch box) for your child.
Do you provide snacks?
We do not provide a snack at the Hershey Camp locations. However, we do take a snack break in both the AM and PM camps.
We ask parents to send a water bottle and a NUT-FREE snack for their child.
If your child is attending the full day, we ask that you provide your child a water bottle, two NUT-FREE snacks, and a NUT-FREE lunch.
What is your policy on foods with NUTS?
We are a nut restrictive camp. This means that we request all students to bring only NUT FREE food into our camp.
However, we cannot guarantee that we are NUT FREE. Occasionally students do show up with products in their snack or lunch that contain nuts.
Our staff is trained to isolate any products that we discover which contain nuts.
Students are required to wash their hands immediately after eating with special attention to anyone who had products that contained nuts.
If your child has a nut allergy, we encourage you to disclose that to staff before they attend any programs so that we can take extra precautions to try to eliminate exposure to any nut oils or products.
Do I have to register for a full week?
Yes, all camps are for the full week, Monday through Friday.
We do not have partial week registration at this time.
Can my child take his project home?
We understand the desire for your child to bring their creations home; however, due to the high cost of the carefully curated kits used in our programs (ranging from $100 to $500 per kit), we are unable to send the building projects home with the students.
These kits include unique and traditional bricks, as well as electronic components, enabling students to create extraordinary builds, working machines, and functioning robots.
Instead, we capture the excitement and pride of their projects through extensive photography, providing you with a regular glimpse into the fantastic work your child has accomplished during their time with us.
For specific programs like Animation and Video Game Design Camps, students will have the opportunity to take home their videos and video games, allowing them to showcase their creativity beyond our facility.
Is there a waitlist if I can't reserve the times and days that I want?
When a session sells out, we will start a waitlist. People on the waitlist will be notified in order if/when a spot opens up. (Book early to avoid being on a waitlist!)
Do Snapology camps appeal to all ages?
One of the best things about Snapology is its wide appeal to children of all ages. We host a variety of camps for children from 5 years old to 12 years old.
Each camp lists the minimum age and a recommended maximum age based on the subject matter, but older students are welcome in younger camps.
At the Lancaster location, we offer a camp designed for younger students and a camp designed for older students each week. At third party locations we try to provide a mix of camps for different age ranges.
Can I extend the camp time?
Due to low demand for extended care, we will not offer extended care during the 2024 Summer Camp season.
