Corrections: Summer Camps 2002

After going to press last week, Almanac was informed of some changes to the 2002 Summer Camp information published on the back page of the February 12 issue.

Quaker Basketball Camp dates are two sessions, June 17 to 21 and June 24 to 28; the cost is $190 per session and $160 for children of Penn faculty and staff or if more than one family member is participating.

Gymnastics Camp cost is $235 per person, per session, and not $225 as listed. The fee was modified to include PENNCard charges.

Penn Summer Arts Studio dates were listed incorrectly; the dates for PSAS are June 30 to July 26. Almanac regrets the error.
