Participant Comments

The Susquehanna Kids’ College experiences challenge participants to think critically, work collaboratively, and solve problems creatively through their involvement in a variety of dynamic, hands-on activities that encourage ingenuity, communication and cooperation in a nurturing, engaging educational environment. Children who have participated in our programs, as well as their parents have given us feedback about both the Kids' Summer Camp and the Junior Writers' Workshop. Here's what they're saying!
