From June 30 through August 8, the Patrician Society conducted its 34th camp season under the guidance of Camp Director Dennis Mueller (in his 20th year) and veteran Associate Directors Ursula Campbell, Maeve Rooney, and Cullen Rota. The camp, as usual, offered six one-week sessions for forty 5-11 year-olds in each session.

The children who attended the camp are members of low-income families who are served in one or more of our other programs. We try to keep the camp as low-cost as possible charging $30 per child for a one-week session. Operating on a "shoe-string" budget and using grants from the Michael Petrone Foundation and the St. Thomas of Villanova Stewardship Council as well as contributions from our very generous private donors, we provide activities including sports, games, arts & crafts, lunch, and thrice-weekly field trips.

For more information about enrollment or to find how you may help to support the 2015 edition of the camp, please call (610)272-6316 or email info@patriciansociety.org
