Camp Gannon Makes Summer Learning Fun

Erie, PA; Learn set design for a play or how to run a basketball set play. Analyze forensic evidence or soccer defenses or water quality on Presque Isle Bay. Whatever you want to do this summer, Camp Gannon makes summer learning fun, easy and more convenient than ever.

Learning has always been part of summers at Gannon University. Camp Gannon is a one-stop-shop of exciting and rewarding summer activities for ages 7-18.

Offerings at Camp Gannon include the popular summer camps that teach skills on the individual and team levels to eager young athletes who are hungry to improve. Rigorous summer academic programs are also offered, such as the Summer School of Excellence, at which invited students can learn aboard the
Environaut, Gannon University's 53-foot research vessel. Budding actors can take the stage at the Gannon Theatre Experience and aspiring journalists can fine-tune their skills.

Camps are conducted in Gannon's exceptional learning environments, including the newly opened School of Communication and the Arts, the innovative Forensic Investigation Center and the Student Recreation and Wellness Center.
