Camp ESCAPE Welcomes Return of Gorgeous Weather

Prepping for sun-baked goodness

Wednesday was just too nice for planned indoor activities, so Penn College’s Camp ESCAPE ignored the agenda and ventured outside for lunch (and beyond). After days of high humidity and frequent rainstorms, campers took advantage of pleasant weather to play tennis, basketball, sand volleyball and Capture the Flag. And at the end of all that exercise, a reward: s’mores in their own solar-powered pizza ovens. The youngsters were allowed to play games, try a new sport, read a book (or an iPad) or simply sit in a group and talk … provided they stay outdoors and meet the goal of enjoying a beautiful day!
