SUMCD to hold summer camp program for local kids

From staff reports

LEWISTOWN – When school ends, students can continue learning through the 2014 Summer Camp program, organized by Snyder Union Mifflin Child Development, Inc.

This year’s program has a new curriculum that focuses on preparing youth for the future, including high school, college and the work force. Activities emphasize the core subject areas of science, math, engineering, technology, social studies, art, reading, language and physical education.

“SUM Assembly Required” is the catch phrase this summer as participants focus on the following themes: The Naturalist, The Environmentalist, The Scientist, The Outdoor Recreationist and The Survivalist.

Summer Camp is available from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, from early June through late August, to children who have completed kindergarten through sixth grade.

A new program, “Counselor in Training”, also will be available this year. This program is open to students who have completed fifth, sixth or seventh grades. Students will be offered hands-on trainings in leadership, decision-making and youth development. There is an application process for interested candidates. Youth who participate in the CIT program will earn service learning hours and receive a junior staff T-shirt to wear.
