Summer Youth Program brochure now available

3/23/2005 —
Penn State Wilkes-Barre’s 2005 Summer Youth Program brochure is now 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, journalists, horticulturists, sports enthusiasts, and more. Hands-on activities, experiments, and projects with experienced instructors are geared to each grade level. Nineteen new camps have been added, including camps for pre-school age children and their parents.

This year, two family summer camps will be offered. Weather Wonders, a camp about meteorology, will be taught by Scott Stuccio, Penn State Wilkes-Barre meteorology instructor and certified chief meteorologist at WYOU-TV 22. Stuccio will discuss how weather is predicted using the recently installed campus weather station. The Starry Night will introduce families to the stars and planets through the Friedman Observatory with Dr. Timothy Lawlor, astronomy and physics professor at the campus.

Students may purchase lunch or may bring lunch from home. While children attend camps, parents/guardians are welcome to use the campus library or the exercise/weight room in the Athletic Building.

Soccer camp starts on June 20; other sports camps include golf, volleyball, cheerleading, and basketball. For more information, or a complete brochure, call Denise Bellas at 570-675-9220 or email wbce@outreach@psu.edu.
