BACKGROUND:
The College Settlement of Philadelphia, currently celebrating the 100th anniversary of their summer camp programs, hosts the 90th College Settlement Camps Community Supper this Thursday, June 9th in Horsham, from 4:30 to 7 p.m.

“Since 1932, a chicken supper has been provided to the families of campers and to our generous Horsham neighbors on a Thursday in June,” said Terry Dougherty, Executive Director of College Settlement. “For the past 89 years, this event has been one of the biggest events in Horsham. After a two-year absence, we are happy to be hosting the June Supper, with an evening of fun that includes a bake sale with homemade ‘goodies,’ tours of the camp, hayrides, a cash raffle, a bike raffle, other basket raffles, and many fun activities for children – as well as our famous chicken dinner.”

The evening’s activities will also include the re-dedication of the renovated Elliott Swimming Pool, as well as remarks from Pennsylvania State Senator Maria Collett, who represents the Twelfth Senatorial District (which includes Horsham).

The June Supper is an opportunity for past, current and future camper families and friends, camp alumni, camp counselors and staff, as well as involved community members to visit College Settlement Camp ahead of the summer camp season, which begins on Monday, June 20th and continues through Friday, August 12th. Attendees can tour the facilities, see the recent renovations to the swimming pool, inquire about other camp activities, bring their children to see the camp, and get a feeling of what so many Philadelphians have experienced since the founding of the College Settlement summer camps programs in 1922.

Founded to serve the children of Philadelphia and their families by providing a healthy outdoor, country experience in the aftermath of the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, the mission of College Settlement of Philadelphia and the College Settlement Camps is more vital than ever as the Philadelphia region copes with the COVID-19 pandemic.
