UPJ plans getaway family weekend

Family-oriented informal classes, performances and field trips highlight a weekend getaway this summer at Pitt's Johnstown campus June 23 – 27.

Guests will stay at the UPJ Living/Learning Center. Located in a wooded setting, the center includes on-site cafeteria, exercise room, recreation lounge, sauna and laundry facilities. Each room has a private bath, telephone, microwave and refrigerator.

Optional activities include performances by Johnstown Professor Dave Willey, also known as the Mad Scientist, who has appeared on The Tonight Show; a re-enactment of infantry tactics of the Civil War; an exotic reptile and amphibian collection display, and star-gazing under the direction of Johnstown astronomy instructor Steve Lindberg. Fieldtrips include jaunts to off-campus sites such as Idlewild Park.
