Penn State Scranton to Offer Summer Youth Programs

As the summer months draw near, Penn State Scranton’s Center for Business Development and Community Outreach (CBDCO) department is gearing up for its popular Nittany Cub Summer Camps, offering a blend of fun and educational experiences for children. Penn State alumni and employees are eligible for exclusive discounts for these exciting camps.

The Nittany Cub Summer Camps at Penn State Scranton are designed to engage children in various areas of interest, with a strong focus on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics).

Spanning four weeks from the second week of July to the first week of August, these camps aim to stimulate creativity and cater to different learning styles and capabilities.

“We offer half-day weeklong camps from July 8 through Aug. 2, 2024,” Penn State Scranton’s CBDCO Education Specialist Jo Ann Durdan said. “Nittany Cub Camps are a great way for young campers to discover STEM/STEAM concepts while having fun and making friends.”

Camp offerings include a wide range of activities, from engaging projects and crafts to participating in sports camps. Campers will have the opportunity to explore their interests while learning and developing skills in various disciplines by engaging in a wide range of projects and activities.

Families interested in enrolling their children in these camps are encouraged to act fast, as some camps tend to sell out quickly.

“We welcome you to become part of the Nittany Cub Camp family,” Durdan said, who herself is an alumna of Penn State. “As a personal story, my daughter Elizabeth had attended the summer camps, and since my husband is an alum, we were able to take advantage of the discount. This helped us financially to be able to send her to more than one camp. She loved all the camps that she attended and is now an instructor.”

Penn State Scranton’s Nittany Cub Summer Camps have a long-standing tradition of providing children with memorable summer experiences, combining fun with a supportive environment. Parents are encouraged to review the Summer Youth Camps Policies and Information to stay updated on important details.

For families seeking an enriching summer experience for their children, Penn State Scranton’s Nittany Cub Summer Camps offer a perfect blend of education and entertainment, creating lasting memories for young campers.

Call the center at 570-963-2600 to register your child and for more information about special discounts for the children of campus alumni and employees.
