Final session of Summer Youth Program offers fun and learning for youth
Area youth still have an opportunity to learn and let their imaginations soar this summer at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus. Students in kindergarten through seventh grade can participate in a variety of activities to expand their minds and imagination as part of the 2012 Summer Youth Program’s final session running August 6-10.
The August session of the program features courses in a wide variety of subjects: science and nature courses allow students the chance to go exploring on a backyard safari or become mad scientists; art and history are used to discover the world of pirates; dreams may come true for students who want to participate in their own theatrical production; sports and fitness courses challenge sports and fitness courses challenge students in baseball strategies; and many more.
“Our summer programs this year have provided great academic and social enrichment opportunities for children in our area. Led by our outstanding faculty, school age children explored new areas of learning and made new friends in a safe and welcoming environment. The classes scheduled this week will continue with that same plan. Our program outcomes are educational, but they also make learning fun,” says Joe Segilia, director of Outreach and Continuing Education at the campus.
The week-long session of this summer program will take place Monday through Friday, August 6-10. Classes are offered as a morning session, which take place from 9 a.m. to noon, and an afternoon session from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. each day. The fee for a morning session class is $89 for the week, or $159 for a morning and afternoon session course for a week. Lunch will be provided.
