We offer upwards of 30 youth camps for students entering grades 1–12 during the weeks of June 22–26 and June 29–July 3. Your child will learn, make new friends, and have tons of fun. We offer art, nature, theatre, technology (Scratch, Lego Land®, and more), math, science, writing, crafts, sports (golf, basketball, volleyball), and more. We have something for everyone—our most popular camps, and we will have some new ones too! We look forward to seeing you in the summer.
The primary goal of our Summer Youth Camps is to provide challenging, educational activities for students of various grade levels. We are devoted to sparking an interest in science, technology, the arts, and healthy sports training. Our unique approach emphasizes creative learning and adventure through projects, field trips, experiments, game-play, and numerous hands-on activities.
Our instructors are uniquely qualified and have had their credentials approved at many levels of the University to ensure the best for your children. They are experienced professionals who will ensure safe, educational fun.
Limited scholarships are available and will be awarded based on financial need and are given on a first-come, first-served basis until the funds have been depleted. Please call our office at 570-675-9253 to request an application. There are a limited number of scholarships for certain camps, so not everyone will be granted their 1st-choice camp.
Please read the letter from our Director of Continuing Education.
