Since our founding in 1893, we’ve been dedicated to lighting up the lives of Philadelphians. Today, we proudly serve over 4,000 community members with a wide array of recreational programs and events tailored for kids aged 1 to 18.

These programs are designed to spark imagination, cultivate skills, and foster a sense of community. From our Guiding Light STEM program to our youth sports leagues, there’s something for every child to explore and enjoy. We ensure that each child’s journey with us is filled with excitement, learning, and memorable experiences.

Join us in shaping bright futures and creating lasting memories at The Lighthouse!
