Like Mr. Polito, the camp has other very qualified and experienced staff and interns. They have planned a fun, engaging, empowering, and age-appropriate line-up of programs and activities for PA 2015!
Wendy Ruby, Executive Director, PRIDE, Youth and Community Resources, made the statement, "I can tell you first-hand what an exceptional camp it is and the incredibly positive experiences my now 17 year old friend and other youth that attended, have conveyed to me. The leadership skills and responsible decision-making uniquely learned at PA Camp made a tremendous difference in the choices they made in not only in high school with friends, social activities, academic success, and leadership roles in their school and community, but also in college and job interviews. I believe the PA Camp experience and the positive, healthy choices they made during these critical teen years helped form the leaders they have become, and still impacts them today!"
