SummerCamp 2020

The experts at Queen & Rook Game Cafe have put our collective game expertise and youth development skills together for the most epic summer camp ever!  Each week Adventurers will engage in project based learning, collaborative creation and problem solving while having lots of laughs and a great time.

Thank you for your patience as we planned Summer Camp activities at Queen & Rook Game Cafe. It has been an enormous challenge to try to get this right in terms of safety, staffing, and fitting the needs of parents and kids. We have come up with something that hopefully fills all those different needs.

We are following all state guidelines for Summer Camp related to Covid-19 safety. and limiting the camp to only six adventureers per week. Specific details will be provided upon registration.

Youth must be at least 6 years old at time of the start of camp and no more than 15 years old at time of the start of camp.

We will offer two options for in-person camp: 1) MORNING only, and 2) FULL DAY camp (with additional AFTERCARE available). At this time we are unable to offer a virtual camp option, but will keep you updated if this becomes available.

1) MORNING camp hours will go from 8:30am to 12:00pm (noon) Monday to Friday, and will include the main project-based learning, a snack, and free play time.

2) FULL DAY camp will go from 8:30am to 3:00pm, Monday to Friday. It will include the main project-based learning, a snack, lunch time, outside play, and board/card game free play as well as extra project time. (LUNCH provided by Queen & Rook is available for an extra $30 per week.)

3) AFTERCARE will go from 3:00pm to 5:30pm, with a pick up window until 5:45pm.  Aftercare will consist of board game play, card games and other activities designed by counselors.

Gallery and how the library works


We have Philadelphia’s largest game library of more than 1,200 modern games, classic games, family games, party games, and retro games (for kids of the 70s, 80s, & 90s).
Current Covid-19 precautions mean library games can only be played in our outdoor seating area, and guests are not allowed to browse the library. Gamekeepers will recommend games and bring them to your table based on your preferences. After being played, games are sanitized and quarantined for 3 days before being put back into circulation.
Library access is $7/person for 3 hours
Children 12 and under play free at all times!
