Brandywine hosts summer campus for local youngsters

For several weeks this summer, Penn State Brandywine will find itself teeming, not just with college-aged students preparing for the real world, but also a younger generation of kids looking for a fun way to spend their hot summer months.

The campus will host the Middletown Township summer camp from June 29 to Aug. 7 for 11 to 14-year-old local kids. It will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Campers will use classrooms in the John D. Vairo Library, the Commons Building gymnasium, and the campus grounds, in addition to scheduled trips off campus.

The lucky campers can look forward to day trips to Ocean City, N.J., Dorney Park, Clementon Park, Conchester Lanes, Arnold’s Family Fun Center, and will even cheer on the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizen’s Bank Park. The kids will get creative as they make sand art bottles, T-shirts, and picture frames, and develop their athletic skills playing dodgeball, kickball, and wiffleball, participating in relay races, and tackling obstacle courses.

All activities will be supervised by camp counselors and supervisors hired and trained by the township.
