It's our final weekend here at Penn Summer Discovery. As we prepare for our final night activities tomorrow and our last departure day Saturday, the students and staff have been looking back on the amazing memories we've had this past summer.
The students have been able to explore Philadelphia and all the amazing sights and events. They have been able to see iconic sights, such as the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and a Philadelphia Bus Tour. The students have also been able to visit many of the museums in Philadelphia, including the Franklin Institute, Eastern State Penitentiary, and the Philadelphia Art Museum, home of the famous Rocky Steps!
Our weekend trips have been a crowd favorite from the start of the summer. From exploring the National Mall in Washington D.C., sampling sweet treats and thrilling rides at Hershey Park, soaking up the sun at the beach, and shopping in New York City and the King of Prussia Mall, the students have been able to explore not only Philadelphia, but the surrounding area as well.
Last, but certainly not least, we've had plenty of activities in our home away from home, Rodin College House. From karaoke nights to De-Stress Fests, paint nights to henna and flash tattoos, and plenty of snack breaks from local food vendors, we've made sure to make each moment of the summer count for our students.
While it is always sad to see our students go, we wish them all the best in their future endeavors and know that they will be successful in anything they choose to do. It's been an absolutely fantastic summer and we've enjoyed every moment with our students.
Until next summer, we wish everyone safe travels home, an incredible year, and want to extend a thank you to everyone who was a part of our 2018 Penn Summer Discovery family.
