Kaupas Camp

We are currently planning for our 8th summer Kaupas Camp. The Maria Kaupas Center in Mount Carmel works in conjunction with Bucknell University staff and students to provide a quality experience for Mount Carmel Area Junior High Students (Grades 5 to 8) every summer!

During the camp which is held every June, students will visit Bucknell University to take part in academic, leadership, and athletic activities.  In addition, Bucknell staff and athletes visit the MCA Campus to provide and conduct a variety of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) activities during the camp. Thank you to our local community members who have donated to our camp! Learn more about the Maria Kaupus Camp and how you can help. Please contact Pete Cheddar in the MCA District Office for more information.
