Patrick Henry College has revamped its summer Teen Camps program to include a new website and logo, as well as scholarship opportunities for campers.
Alumna Jennifer Olmstead (Journalism, ’08), owner of the graphic design company Deleted Space Creative, developed both the website and the new Teen Camps logo. Camp leadership hopes that the site will increase both Teen Camp’s visibility and professional presentation.
The logo, modeled off the Tree of Life metaphor, bears a special significance for returning Director Stephen Williams.
“Within a single symbol is the presence of both stability and growth, of strength and renewal. Playing off of the tree concept seemed natural for the camps program, because we want to provide students with an experience that will simultaneously help ground them in the love of Christ and inspire them to hope in His good work in their lives."
In addition to the new website, Teen Camps is now offering scholarship opportunities for campers to attend a camp of their choice. Applications are due by the end of April. A review committee will determine camper eligibility based on an application process that includes two essays, a character reference form, and financial information.
“We hope these scholarships can give the Teen Camps experience to students who would not otherwise be able to attend,” said Raquel Schierkolk, this summer’s female Head Counselor.
This summer’s camps include Constitutional Law, Journalism, Drama, Strategic Intelligence, Public Speaking, Debate, Literature: “Journey to Middle Earth,” and Leadership and Vocation.
