Penn Manor to offer free coding camps for grades 1-6 this summer

Penn Manor will be hosting in-person Elementary Coding Camps for students in grades 1 through 6 this summer at Conestoga Elementary School. The camps are free and will include a daily snack for participants. Parents will be responsible for transportation to and from the school.

Each camp session is limited to 25 students, and slots will be filled based on registration status on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to space limitations, students may only attend one camp session.
