Mother Nature turned up the temperature for the seventh and final week of Camp ESCAPE, Penn College’s summer getaway that has featured a mix of indoor/outdoor fun along with field trips and other activities for the past two months. On Monday, with 90-degree readings and humidity to match, the youngsters made s’mores in foil-lined “ovens” crafted from pizza boxes. “We played a quick game of large sand volleyball while they cooked,” said Jeremy R. Bottorf, coordinator of intramural sports/campus recreation (who also provided the photos). “Which, needless to say, didn’t take too long!”
