Summer Youth Camps

Summer means fun, and it will mean extra fun when your child is enjoying enriching activities and sports training at Penn State Wilkes-Barre's Summer Youth Day Camp Program.

The primary goal of our Summer Youth Camps is to provide challenging, educational activities for students of various grade levels. We are devoted to sparking an interest in science, technology, the arts, and healthy sports training. Our unique approach emphasizes creative learning and adventure through projects, field trips, experiments, game-play, and numerous hands-on activities. See the video.

Our instructors are uniquely qualified and have had their credentials approved at many levels of the University to ensure the best for your children. They are experienced professionals who will ensure safe, educational fun.

Limited scholarships are available and will be awarded based on financial need and are given on a first-come, first-served basis until the funds have been depleted. Please call our office at 570-675-9253 to request an application. There are limited number of scholarships for certain camps so not everyone will be granted their 1st choice camp.

Many new camps will be offered this summer.  They will include a summer music camp, co-ed basketball, Minecraft designers, computer, art and many more. To see what camps are available this year, view our summer camp descriptions, or visit our summer camps schedule.
