Continuing Education seeks summer camp scholarship donors, sponsors

3/29/2010 —

The Penn State Beaver Office of Continuing Education is seeking individual and corporate sponsors to provide scholarships for children to attend an academic or athletic summer camp. In addition, sponsors also are needed to underwrite the costs of presenting the camps.

'We’re preparing at least 20 summer camps that will provide youngsters with educationally sound instruction while encouraging teambuilding, creativity and problem-solving," said Marian Vendemia, director of Continuing Education. "The generosity of donors helps us to support our mission to provide children with a safe and caring environment in which they can explore their world, especially those children who wouldn’t be able to attend camp without a scholarship."

The cost of sponsoring a child for any camp is $215. Other donations received will help to underwrite the cost of crafts, food, beverages and other necessary camp items.

To make a donation, contact Vendemia at mev7@psu.edu or 724-773-3767, or call the Continuing Education Office at 724-773-3700.
