Gannon University gets ready to embark on another summer filled with fun. From kicking a soccer ball to investigating a crime scene, learning lacrosse technique to producing manuscripts, Camp Gannon has a lot in store for its 2016 campers.

Learning has always been part of summers at Gannon. 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 skill on the individual level and team levels to eager young athletes who are hungry to improve. Rigorous summer academic programs are also offered such as the Regional Summer School of Excellence at which invited students can learn aboard the Environaut, Gannon’s 53-foot research vessel. Budding actors can learn first-hand from Gannon’s finest theatre students and aspiring journalists can fine tune their skills.
