Which grade do I register for? Please register your child for the grade they will be ENTERING in the Fall of 2022.
What is provided: Campers will also be provided with a morning and afternoon snack and all materials needed to complete the activities during camp. Refillable water bottles will be provided for each camper. Please do not bring along water bottles.
What to bring: Bagged lunch (only if you are a full-day camper). Refrigeration will not be available.

Camp Scholarship Funds (Grades K – 6)
We are proud to offer scholarship funds to qualifying families for our Discovery Camps, which services children in grades Kindergarten through six. Children of parents who currently qualify for the Pennsylvania ACCESS/EBT Card are eligible. Scholarship funds cover the majority of the cost for camps. Families are responsible for a small portion of the remaining cost, payable at the time of registration.
In order to serve as many families as possible, scholarship funds cannot be used by the same child for more than one week of STEM Camps. This can mean either one week of full day camp (for Grade 2-3 and 4-6 campers) or two weeks of half day camps (for K-1 campers only).
Please click the button below to submit your request for scholarship funding. This form will require you to submit your images of your driver's licence and ACCESS card. You will then be contacted by a member of the Education Team to process your payment. Questions? Please contact our Director of Education at email@example.com or 717-724-3865.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to the Education Department at Whitaker Center. We are more than happy to discuss questions, concerns, or accommodations needed to make your camper’s experience as wonderful as possible.
