Summer Youth Program brochure now available

5/1/2006 —
Penn State Wilkes-Barre’s 2006 Summer Youth Program brochure is currently available at the campus and on-line. The brochure lists complete descriptions and cost information for programs that provide challenging and enriching activities for students from two to eighteen years old.

Created to spark an interest in science and technology, camps are also available for budding artists, actors, chefs, sports enthusiasts, and more. Hands-on activities, experiments, and projects with experienced instructors are geared to each grade level.

Twenty new camps have been added this year for campers from pre-school through twelfth grade. Taking its cue from the popular survival series on television, the new "Survivor Lehman" camp for grades 4-6 blends outdoor adventure, scavenger hunts, physical tests and assessment of strategy and survival skills. But at this camp, no-one gets voted out! "The Apprentice," for grades 9-12, will help prepare high school students for work in the real world. In this camp, students will learn how to fill out a job application, how to write an effective résumé, and how to perform well in an interview. Other new camps include Math Sports Games, American Girl Literature, Lego Land, and Future Forester. For descriptions of all of the new and returning camps, view the Summer Youth Program brochure.

Students may purchase lunch or may bring lunch from home. Limited round trip bus service is available for full-day campers only. While children attend camps, parents/guardians are welcome to use the campus library or the exercise/weight room in the Athletic Building.

Weekly sports camps start with soccer on June 26, followed by golf, volleyball, and basketball. For more information, or a complete brochure, call Ellen Gregoris at 570-675-9220 or email wbsummeryouth@psu.edu.
