Summer Day Camp Update

Dear Club Families, Friends and Community,

During this unprecedented health crisis, our nation is facing more challenges than ever before, and we understand the implications these have on your family. The North Penn Valley Boys & Girls Club continues to work tirelessly with our partners, local school districts, health care providers, government officials and other organizations to determine how we can best serve Club youth and families now and in the future.

Because the safety of young people, our staff and volunteers is always our top priority, the North Penn Valley Boys & Girls Club will remain CLOSED until further notice. The Club will not offer summer camp and will be closed for the summer. All camp refunds will be mailed out next week.

If you have any questions regarding the closure, you can contact Cathy Shipp Director of Operations at cshipp@npvclub.org or Robert Kreamer CEO at rkreamer@npvclub.org.

Please stay safe and healthy,
Robert Kreamer
CEO

International Night!

Daira, representing Mexico

On Wednesday, February 5th, Wissahickon Valley hosted our first annual International Night! This event showcased Mexican and Italian cultures, in particular. Our building was quickly transformed into an international oasis; boasting homemade delicacies such as ensalada de manzana, tamales, mole, arroz y pollo and gelatina from Mexico and risotto and pizzelles hailing from Italy. With over 10 families participating, we were able to fill our minds – and our bellies – with authentic cuisine and culture! We are so proud of the cultures represented at Wissahickon Valley and cannot wait to see what else we can learn from our families next year! Thank you to all who participated in this event!
