Our mission is "Nurturing the Spiritual, Educational, Social and Physical Development of Children and Youth in Uptown Harrisburg."
Our main focus is to provide a safe place for children to learn and grow. Our vision is to respect every individual regardless of the differences between us. We aim to build positive self-esteem and confidence, forge leadership skills building on the eight pillars of character. This year camp will focus on children in
GRADES 3-8. The full day program provides a variety of experiences to help our children grow and develop.
The heart of the program is centered around:
The program directors oversee a staff of bright and energetic counselors who are dedicated and committed to the well being, safety and development of our youth.
St. Barnabas is a non-profit 501 (c)3 organization and all donations help subsidize tuition, going directly to services for the children. All contributions are tax deductible and greatly appreciated.
The celebration was held at Goodwin Life Center Saturday, October 20, 2018. We were honored to have James Crummel, anchor of the ABC 27 News, as our Master of Ceremonies. His first job was a counselor at St. Barnabas so it was our privilege to have him return to help us celebrate.
Respect, Caring, Fairness, Responsibility, Trustworthiness, Citizenship and Forgiveness are among the 7 Pillars of Character presented by children. These are the foundation for the program here at St. Barnabas.
We were honored to have many Harrisburg dignitaries and supporters speak about the 7 Pillars of Charcter. These are the building blocks of St. Barnabas' program.
Children from the summer camp had a special presentation for everyone.
Summer camp was cancelled due to the pandemic so board members assembled 60+ summer activity bags for campers. They were filled with many games and activities to occupy the long hot summer days. The response was overwhelming.
