WYOMISSING, Pa. — Penn State Berks is bringing fun back to campus with the return of in-person summer camps designed for middle- and high school-aged participants. The camps will be held on weekdays throughout the month of July.
For middle school students, the college offers several Black Rocket camps, all STEM related. These camps focus on eSports, YouTube content creation, ROBLOX coding, and becoming an inventor. Meanwhile, fans of the 80s can enroll in "Camp Know Where," loosely based on the hit TV show "Stranger Things." Budding writers can hone their skills in a writing camp with Penn State alumna Katarina Illona, a published author of a child’s book titled "Bedtime Tails: A New Adventure." Finally, movie buffs can produce their own movies using an iPad, their own props, and their imagination. Family members will be invited to sit back and enjoy the popcorn that comes with the showing of all the movies made during the camp week.
For students with an interest in health-related careers, there will be a one-day Health Careers Camp, where participants can interact with health care professionals followed by a hands-on activity. Mental health, dental, nursing, and occupation/physical therapy professionals will participate in this camp, and lunch is included in the $25 registration fee.
High school camps include a Cyber Security Camp led by one of the college’s security and risk analysis faculty members and an Engineering Camp – Racecars and Rockets, which will give participants the opportunity to design and build race cars and rockets for camp competition.
