Towson University presents Kids Campus Camp Fair

TOWSON, Md. (April 17, 2009)—Towson University will host a camp fair to promote summer camps offered as part of the university's Kids Campus program. The fair will be held on Thursday, April 23 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the University Union.

Representatives from each camp will be present at the fair with information and registration forms. Parents who enroll their children in a camp at the fair will receive a free gourmet lunch. Families will be entered to win a Tracfone—a prepaid wireless cell phone by Motorola—with 60 free minutes.

Towson University’s campus is an exciting environment for boys and girls, with a variety of programs designed with their needs and interests in mind.
