What's covered?

There’s been a spill! We’re not sure how, but State College’s water supply is contaminated. We need Water Heroes like you to find a creative solution to this problem and prevent it from happening in the future. In this three-day camp, you will learn about where our water comes from, investigate the different types of water pollution, and use cutting-edge technologies used to purify water. Join Penn State engineering faculty in this adventure that will include experiments in the laboratory that you design, field investigations of real water sources, interviews with water treatment experts, and detective work to solve the mystery.

Lunch and Snacks

  • Activity breaks will be taken each day to allow kids to eat their peanut free snacks that they brought from home.
  • Campers should pack a peanut free lunch Monday through Wednesday.
