Summer Youth Program at Wyalusing Elementary School

7/1/2004 —

Penn State Wilkes-Barre Northern Tier Center Summer 2004 Youth Program offers children in grades 1 - 6 an action-packed adventure from August 2 – 6 at Wyalusing Elementary School. The day camps have an overall focus on science and technology and feature hands-on activities, experiments, and projects geared to each grade level. The camps provide children an opportunity to explore the world in a safe environment with experienced instructors. 

Students who enjoy making pictures will like the morning session (9 a.m. - noon), PC Palette, which will demonstrate drawing and animating pictures on the computer. Instructor, Frank Sodoski, will work with students to draw characters and diagrams, then animate them for high-tech fun.

The afternoon session (1-4 p.m.) will feature Wizards and Cauldrons: Is it magic or science? Participants will investigate the science behind the magic with instructor, Allison Davis, and live a week as a wizard from a book. They’ll whip up all sorts of chemical concoctions, make an edible wand, and play with “dragon drool.”

Each camp is $79/person and each camper receives a free water bottle. For more information, contact John Swayze at 570-265-2171, ext. 3019 or e-mail jos3@psu.edu.
