As the director of Penn State Beaver Office of Continuing Education, Workforce Development and Youth Programs, I would like to invite you to consider having your children join us for Penn State Beaver’s Summer Youth Programs. This summer we are excited to offer face-to-face camps for children up to age 15.
Each summer we review our camp’s policies and procedures and institute any changes to better ensure the well-being of our campers. This year we have heightened safety precautions due to both Centers for Disease Control restrictions and Penn State University guidelines. We also have scaled back our regular annual camp schedule to meet physical distancing requirements and to provide additional safety measures.
Annually, our instructors, camp aides, and volunteers receive information and training to ensure that they meet our expectations. They are required to pass reference checks and criminal background checks as well as to obtain child abuse clearances. Our instructors and staff members supervise campers throughout their entire day on campus. For more information, see Penn State's Information for Parents page.
Our staff and instructors are dedicated to providing a safe, educational, and fun camp experience for your child. Enrollment is limited in all camps to ensure a quality experience in a safe environment with physical distancing, so we encourage you to register early. For questions or additional information, please contact my staff at 724-773-3700. I hope you will join us!
