JAPANESE, SIGN LANGUAGE, STAINED GLASS MAKING

ALL PART OF SRU SUMMER CAMP FOR CHILDREN

           SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Learning Japanese, leadership skills, sign language, making stained glass windows and tin punching are among the 18 mini-courses being offered at Slippery Rock University’s annual “Enrichment Day Camp” for children this summer.

          The program, which runs July 14-18, is coordinated by the Office of Continuing Education.

          Students in third through fifth grades can select from the “intermediate” course list, while those in grades six and seven select from the “advanced” list.

          “This is a program designed to be both fun and educational,” explains Richard Comings, director of continuing education. “Campers select courses they are interested in, and our camp faculty plan activities that are fast-paced and interesting, while including a strong educational component.”

          Other courses offered at the weeklong camp will be maskmaking and Norse mythology, papermaking, playwriting, the science behind sports, hand sewing, the always popular “Icyy, sticky, slimy, grimy, ooey, gooey chemistry.”

          Camp tuition, including a supervised lunch, is $200 ($190 for those registering by June 16; $185 for those registering early with multiple children in the same family). The registration deadline is July 7.

          Details are available by calling 724-738-2633 or by visiting the university’s Web site: www.sru.edu
