|Subject:||Recognizing May as Summer Camps Month in Pennsylvania|
|Please join me in cosponsoring a resolution recognizing May as Summer Camps Month in the Commonwealth.
Memorial Day is often viewed as the unofficial start to summer. It is also looked upon as the start of summer camp season in Pennsylvania. While the Pocono Region is at the heart of summer camps, hundreds operate across the state hosting tens of thousands of in-state and out-of-state youth. These children and families find camp experiences last a lifetime. Economic benefits stretch far and wide as the direct and indirect impact on our economy is hundreds of millions of dollars each year.
This resolution applauds the summer camp industry, recognizing the role it has in the development of youth and importance to our state economy. I invite you to join me in this recognition.
