A four-week summer program for student-athletes, based on National Strength and Conditioning Association guidelines and taught by exercise science faculty from the School of Health Sciences, continues through July 15. The Youth Training for Athletic Development Camp comprises a morning session for 15- to 17-year-olds and a midday one for youngsters 12 to 14. Penn College’s exercise science major, being offered under that new name starting this fall, is the only such associate-degree program in Pennsylvania to be recognized by the NSCA.
