Brandywine School of Wizardry hosts half day and full day wizarding camps. * Please check the listings above or contact us for specific location information.  

 Full day programs run from 9am-3pm. Half day programs run from 9am-noon. Before/after care available in Chester Springs and Westtown.  

We base our activities on the "classes," events, and activities similar those in the Harry Potter stories.  

Prior to the camp, students receive an "owler" in the mail inviting them to their first day of term, along with secret passwords to know each day to gain points for their houses.  

 Each week is unique based on a new theme.  For example, last summer’s themes focused on the new wizarding schools that J.K. Rowling recently debuted.  Each theme involves a mystery or ultimate effort that the group in engaged in to solve or resolve! Many of each week’s particular lessons/activities are geared toward that week's mystery or theme. The "classes" we teach include but are not limited to the following -  

 

potions 

defense against the dark arts 

charms 

care of magical creatures 

history of magic 

herbology 

divination 

muggle studies 

  

Activities outside of classes include the following -  

The sorting! First years are sorted into their houses.  

We teach and play Quidditch.   

Mystery related activities  

Earning galleons to shop at Honeydukes, Zonkos, and 3 Broomsticks 

Earning house points (and losing them although that's not the fun part) -- points are tallied throughout the year from all programs. 

 

The winning house is announced at our House Cup ceremony held every October.  It also serves as our annual fundraiser for our local library -- Chester Springs Library. We match what is raised to keep the magic alive through books for all children.  

 Activities occur throughout the day both indoors as well as outdoors.  

 Half day vs. full day – Children attending the half day program are involved in a sampling of the major activities – sorting, wands, spells, dueling, potions, quidditch, trips to our version of Honeydukes and Zonkos and the Three Broomsticks, and as time permits, are involved in the other “classes” such as divination, herbology for example.  They are also involved in the major parts of the weeklong mystery/unique theme for the week.  Children attending the full day program do more of each activity as well as branch out into other classes – care of magical creatures and charms for example, and engage in wizarding activities beyond the classes. For instance, there is always a new obstacle course through which students apply their learned spells in order to make their way.    

 Ages range typically from 7-15 years old, though we do have some younger and some older.  Younger children are registered with approval from the director based on safety factors. Older children also attend for reasons such as them being involved with the program from a younger age and are on a prefect/head student/apprentice track.  

 Full day students bring brown bag lunches, snacks, and a water bottle.  Half day students bring a snack and a water bottle.  

 The manner in which to register for programs depends upon the location of the program.  For example, all programs taking place at the Chester Springs and Westtown School locations are registered directly through Brandywine Learning Center, though those taking place at Radnor based locations are registered through Radnor Park and Recreation. This information as well as the coordinating contact information is provided on our website, and has also been listed below.  

 Logistics such as drop off and pick up also vary per location. Closer to camp we provide related details to registered families.  

 * Summer camp in Horsham is a half day program.
