After the success of our first Basecamp Summit in April 2014, Central Penn College is offering a second event this fall!

This senior-focused bridge program is designed to demystify the transition to life beyond the high school classroom. Basecamp Summit provides valuable lessons in relevant topics such as dispute resolution, social media, and budgeting, while also engaging students to discuss concepts that are important to them right now.

During Basecamp Summit, students will also have an opportunity to tour our campus and enjoy lunch with their peers. This program, which comes at no cost to your school, will be held on Monday, November 10 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Central Penn College in Summerdale, PA.
