Creative crafts, cooking, physical activities, indoor and outdoor games, and daylong field trips with new themes each week will be among the highlights at the “Summer Youth Adventure Camp 2001,” being offered June 11 through Aug. 2 at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

The camp, sponsored by the Student Activities Office at Penn College, is designed to enhance the well-being of children ages 8 to 14 through social interaction, physical programs and education.

The cost is $60 per week per child, or $17 per child per day. The camp runs 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday, with extended hours (beginning at 7:30 a.m. and ending at 5:30 p.m.) available for no extra charge. Enrollment is limited to 25 children per day.
