Summer Intern Draws on Personal Experience to Create Programming

August 31st, 2022 News and Events


Adam Mohn, a recent graduate of The Solebury School, spent the summer organizing this year’s Colonial Days Summer Camp as part of an internship sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Washington Crossing-Yardley.

Adam spent most of the summer updating the program by developing activities that would be both fun and educational for a wide range of ages and abilities. As a former camper and camp counselor at Pennsbury Manor, Adam was able to draw from his own experiences to create the programming.

“I’ve always been interested in history but wasn’t very familiar with the time period of the park,” says Adam. “I spent the first few weeks of the internship doing research so I could incorporate accurate information about everyday life and the army in Colonial America into the program.”

The culmination of Adam’s Internship came during camp week when he led the program for campers ages 7-12 years old. It’s something he found important and was really looking forward to.

“I loved my time at camp and wanted to help make that possible for other children,” he says. I’ve had a really great time with the Internship and working with everyone at the park. It’s been a great experience and I learned a lot.”

Adam will be heading to Wesleyan University this fall where he intends to major in Archaeology but says that could change because he’s got a variety of other interests – including animals and medicine to name just a few.
