Summer Camp Expo (Elizabeth House/Kelly Bond)
We need volunteers. The Expo is held in March every year. This event brought in over $6,000 for the PTO General Fund. The Summer Activities Expo, first held in the spring of 2004, makes it easy to learn about the different extracurricular activities available for children (pre-K through teen), by bringing a wide variety of companies together in one place on one night of the year.
The Summer Activities Expo hosts a wide variety of companies that offer year-round and summer programming for kids pre-school through teen. Generally 65+ local companies participate in this annual expo. Visiting the expo allows you to speak with company representatives directly, learn first-hand about the programs they offer, sign up on the spot and win great scholarships and other prizes from the participating exhibitors! As is tradition at the Summer Activities Expo, scheduled demonstrations run throughout the evening at exhibitor’s tables as well as in the main demo area, showcasing a variety of programs.
