Article Body

It’s a summer of fun and learning at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown’s “SummerFun 2007,” July 16 through August 17 for children ages four and older.

Children will learn the “ABCs of Engineering Design,” acting, cool ways to exercise, hands-on photography, nature, creative writing, yoga, and tai chi in this year’s “Summer Mini-Camps” program.

Within the 40 additional fun programs, today’s most popular characters and themes include  “Under the Sea,” Dora the Explorer, “Where the Wild Things Are,” pirates, and “Mystical Mermaids.”  The program also offers opportunities for the dreamer, swashbuckling grand times, magical mystical mermaids, and hands-on opportunities as well as the “Meet our American Girl®,” and Harry Potter® and Friends” series.

In the “Fun at The Bottle Works” series, offered in partnership with The Bottle Works Ethnic Arts Center, programs can ignite imaginations to soar with kite creations; while body, mind and spirit can enter the world of tai chi, and the creation of delicious treats like sugar fossils and layered drinks will fill appetites.

“SummerFun 2007” is offered by the UPJ Office of Outreach and Professional Services.

Registrations are now being accepted for the program.  A complete listing is available by visiting the Outreach website at www.upj.pitt.edu/outreach  or by telephoning 814-269-2099.
