Parents invited to 'Get the Scoop' on Summer Youth Camp details

Parents and prospective campers are invited to enjoy a scoop of Berkey Creamery ice cream while learning about the 15 writing and STEM-related summer camps from camp instructors. The event will take place at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 4, at the campus in Center Valley, Pennsylavnia.

Penn State Lehigh Valley’s lineup of one-week, half-day youth camps run from July 13-17. Offerings include: writing, visual arts, engineering, math, computer programming, video and swimming camps. These camps are geared toward students entering grades first through 12.

Camps are offered in the morning (9 a.m.to noon) or the afternoon (1 to 4 p.m.). Penn State Lehigh Valley staff will be on hand if parents require early drop-off, lunch time supervision and/or late pick-up.

New to the camp lineup this year is a Musikfest Video camp for high school students, which will allow campers to go behind the scenes at one of the largest music festivals in the nation with a veteran television journalist for a hands-on video production experience. The Musikfest Video camp will run Aug. 3 to 14 and is limited to eight participants.

This event is free and open to prospective campers and their parents. RSVP by May 20 to Doug Antonioli at dba117@psu.edu or 610-285-5239. For more information about camp options, cost and registration, visit www.sycroar.org or email sycroar@psu.edu.
