As the Women’s World Cup surges into the quarterfinals and Major League Baseball nears its All-Star Break, the youngsters in Penn College’s Camp ESCAPE this week paid homage to both sports. The seven-week camp, headquartered in and around the Field House and running through July 25, offers a variety of opportunities and activities for boys and girls from age 6 to 14. Among Week Four’s diversions were an impromptu go-around with an oversized soccer ball on Monday and a trip to the World of Little League Museum on Tuesday.
