From its inception in 1957, HCC has relied on community donations, pool memberships and facility use fees to finance its projects and required maintenance of facilities. We appreciate all the community support and continued membership to help keep the Harleysville Community Center an important place for family and friends to gather and share memories.
A special Thank You goes out to our Community partners – Lower Salford Township, Excel Communications, Harleysville Bank, Harleysville Jaycees, Harleysville Lions and Harleysville Rotary for their ongoing support of HCC.

HARLEYSVILLE SUMMER DAY CAMP
COMING IN 2022!
As the summer months are not too far off in the future we are happy to announce that the Harleysville Summer Day Camp will be one of the programs held at the Harleysville Community Center in 2022! The HCC is located at 435 Park Ave. between Kulp Rd. and Maple Ave. The day camp offices will be based out of the Harleysville Community Scout Cabin.
Camp dates for 2022 are Monday, June 20 through Friday, August 12 (8 weeks). Families can register anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks. The camp day will run from 9AM-4PM Monday through Friday with Extended Hours in the AM from 7-9AM and in the PM from 4-6PM.
The Harleysville Summer Day Camp is a Traditional Summer Day Camp with Educational Leadership. The day camp is designed to provide a healthful and safe atmosphere where each camper can enjoy a wide variety of activities. Our goal is to instill the values of respect for others, honesty, and good sportsmanship. The Instructors/Teachers will direct the activities to promote fun and learning in a non-competitive atmosphere. HSDC is affiliated and owned by the management staff from the Flourtown Summer Day Camp (www.flourtownswimclub.net) which has been in operation for over 14 years serving families in the Flourtown area and now in Harleysville as well!
The Day Camp’s Staff will include local Professional/Certified Educators, Coaches (Collegiate, High School, and Youth) and Nurses, Certified Swim Instructors and Lifeguards, Senior/Junior Counselors, Specialty Staff and Office Personnel. It is our belief that a mature and experienced staff will not only give your child the optimum summer day camp experience but it will also provide for you as a parent that your child is under constant supervision and in a safe environment. College Undergraduate Education Majors and professionals are highly sought as staff members for those reasons.
The daily program is structured and scheduled, but not highly competitive. Activities and field trips are geared appropriately to age and grade levels. Children are grouped accordingly to age (grade level completed this school year) and gender; the 4-year-old age group is co-ed. There is also a half-day program offered for the 4-yr. old group as well (AM option only). Our main objective is to provide each and every child with a safe and enjoyable experience while at the Harleysville Summer Day Camp!
Activities include daily swim lessons, recreational swimming, archery, basketball, Arts & Craft, music & dance, bones ball (form of baseball), field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, street hockey, Gaga pit, Playground (both new to HCC!), Sustainable Gardening, nature hikes, on campus performances, themed weeks, Gator Day Fridays, field trips and much more!
The camp also has a CIT Program (current 8th graders) who wish to experience counselor responsibilities in hope of working in a camp environment in the future.
Tutoring Services will also be available (additional fee) on site during the camp day for K-6 students that wish to use for enrichment or prepare for that next grade level in reading, writing, or math. Our PA Elementary Certified teacher will hold 40-minute sessions that both parent and tutor can schedule.

Harleysville Community Center Pools
PANDEMIC COMPLIANCE PLAN
As of May 24, 2021; subject to change
According to the guidelines and requirements set by the CDC, local, state and federal government as well as health experts, Harleysville Community Center Pool has developed new guidelines and protocols to maintain a safe environment for all members, staff, guests and vendors during the 2021 Summer Season. We will be periodically reviewing and adjusting these safety measures throughout the season as needed or as state-mandated restrictions are modified. These measures are in addition to our standard operating pool procedures and regulations.
ENTERING THE FACILITY
If you or your family members show symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of sense of smell or taste, stomach distress, body aches or rash, etc. please be considerate of other members and stay at home until symptoms subside. If you have recently been in close contact with someone who has been exposed or tested positive for COVID-19, please refrain from coming to the Pool.
All vaccinated patrons are not required to wear a face mask when entering the pool grounds. If you are not vaccinated, we kindly ask that you wear a mask as you approach the ticket booth.
A face covering will be required to enter any buildings. This includes the First Aid room, Snack Bar and Restrooms. Members are asked to bring their own face covering to the pool.
Face covering is not required until you visit one of the designated areas above or cannot socially distance from non-family members.
For your own safety and enjoyment, please consider BYOE (Bring Your Own Everything.) Examples include chairs, goggles, personal hand sanitizer, swim toys, basketball, etc.
POOL TOYS – Personal pool toys will be allowed only in the Toddler Pool. No toys, masks, or equipment will be given out from the ticket booth.

Day pass guests will be allowed. They will sign the waiver and must abide by the health and safety standards set forth.
Based on capacity numbers for the day, day passes may not be available on holidays or hot/ busy days.
- Cashless payments should be used when possible.
USING THE POOL
Pool Guidelines – Staff will closely monitor the pool occupancy to maintain social distance. Please continue to enjoy the pool as you normally would with respect to sitting on or jumping off the side of the pool while being mindful of others in the pool or on the pool deck.
If the pool exceeds social distancing capacity, an adult swim may be called to clear the pool for a period of time.
Diving Well Guidelines – Members should maintain social distancing while waiting their turn at the diving board and slides.
Baby Pool Guidelines – Parents should use discretion regarding capacity. A child must be closely supervised by a parent to maintain social distancing. Pool toys may not be shared.
We will continue our rigorous water and chlorine testing to meet state guidelines.
FOOD, BEVERAGE AND SNACK BAR
Picnic tables will be spaced in designated areas to allow family groups to social distance. We ask that tables not be moved. Supplies will be available to disinfect the tables before and/or after your use of the tables.
The Cool Eats Snack Bar will take orders inside. Patrons must wear a mask in the snack bar and on the patio area when waiting to enter the snack bar. After your order is taken, please wait for your order on the patio. Trays will not be utilized, instead your order will be brought to the window in a bag.
POOL GROUNDS AND FACILITIES
Bathrooms and changing rooms will be open but should be used sparingly, occupancy will be limited and monitored if necessary. If possible, please come to the pool changed and ready to swim.
Please be mindful not to encroach onto other families when walking on grounds.
The water fountain will be replaced with a bottle fill station. This can also be used for filling reusable water bottles. Water bottles will also be available for purchase at the Snack Bar.
Inclement Weather: If storms are expected, pools may close in advance of the storm to avoid crowding.
STAFF AND VENDORS
Staff will agree to health and safety standards checks before every shift.
Additional first aid equipment, and face masks will be provided to the staff.
Staff will not be masked up on the guard stand, but should be when interacting with staff or patrons, performing first aid.
Staff are expected to wash their hands on a regular basis.
GENERAL CLEANING AND REMINDERS
High touch surfaces will be disinfected on a frequent, designated schedule. Surfaces include rails, benches, bathrooms, office items, etc.
Hand sanitizer pumps will be available at the ticket booth and pavilion for your use. Please use hand sanitizer or wash your hands often.
Please encourage activity with immediate family members, caretakers or household members while following best social distancing with other families. Reminder: IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE YOUR CHILDREN ARE SOCIAL DISTANCING ON THE GROUNDS AND IN THE POOL.
We are hopeful that being at the HCC Pool will provide some sense of normalcy while allowing a safe environment for your family.
