SUMMER PROGRAMS & CAMPS 2010

For School-Age Children

Limitless Opportunities
Office of Human Resources
A message to you from
Penn State Work/Life Programs
While summer break is a time for rest and relaxation, it’s
also a time to explore new worlds and opportunities. From
sports to music to science, an active summer should be part
of any child’s overall summer wellness plan.

The Work/Life team in Penn State’s Office of Human


Resources is proud to present this annual compilation of
summer programs. Inside you’ll find a diverse variety of
summer activities located in or around the Centre Region —
over 50 in total. No matter what his or her interest, your
child is bound to find an activity that will provide fun this
summer and memories for life.

We hope you find this guide useful and look forward to


hearing your thoughts on how we can continue to improve
Penn State’s Work/Life outreach efforts in the future.
