Penn College’s Camp ESCAPE continued its simmering summer this week with a beat-the-heat dip at Liberty Splashland in Northumberland, as well as a visit to the Peter J. McGovern Little League Museum in South Williamsport. The boys and girls, aged 8-14, are winding down a seven-week schedule of campus activities and road trips to a variety of attractions. Next week will be the season’s final session, as the youngsters travel to Knoebels for one more water day as they coast to the imminent start of the school year.
