2015 SLEP Environmental Day Camp

June 22 – 26, 1pm – 3pm: The Summer Learning Education Program (SLEP) is a wonderful opportunity for 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th graders to study wildlife while on their summer vacation from school. The topics that will be covered are Ornithology, Nature Art, Microscopy, DNA and Leaves. The cost is free, but is limited to 20 students per day. The program will run from 1:00pm to approximately 3:00 pm each day. Each student or group of students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Most parents/guardians enjoy attending the different programs with their children. There is always something new to learn each and every day. To sign up for the SLEP programs, contact Bruce Robart at 814-269-2911 or robart@pitt.edu.
