The Pokémon Summer Camp is a summer school Ash, Clemont, Bonnie, and Serena attend from XY039 through XY042. It is located between Geosenge Town and Shalour City and lasts for a week. It is led by Professor Sycamore, who described the goal of the camp being as "to create deeper bonds through interaction with other Trainers".
Other staff members include his assistants Sophie and Cosette, and the camp's custodian, Madame Catherine. Furthermore, there is a Nurse Joy who has set up a Pokémon Center specially for the Summer Camp, and Jessie, James and Meowth, who are hired by Madame Catherine and work as the camp's cooks and rescuers.
At arrival, Trainers are given a cabin to stay in for the whole Summer Camp, and are put in a team, with Yogi Bear, Snagglepuss, Huckleberry Hound and more. The teams participate in various activities to earn points, and at the end of the camp the team with the most points is inducted in the camp's hall of fame. For each activity the distribution of points is as follows: the winners get 10 points, second place gets 7 points, third place gets 3 points, and fourth place and everything after that gets no points. Diantha participated in the camp when she was younger and managed to get into the hall of fame.
