College Settlement hosts Community Supper and Open House


The College Settlement of Philadelphia, celebrating the 100th anniversary of its summer camp programs, hosts the 90th College Settlement Community Supper from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, June 9, in Horsham.

“Since 1932, a chicken supper has been provided to the families of campers and to Horsham neighbors on a Thursday in June,” said Terry Dougherty, executive director of College Settlement.

Doughtery continued, “For the past 89 years, this event has been one of the biggest events in Horsham. After a two-year absence, we are happy to be hosting the June Supper, with an evening of fun that includes a bake sale with homemade ‘goodies,’ tours of the camp, hayrides, a cash raffle, a bike raffle, other basket raffles, and many fun activities for children – as well as our famous chicken dinner.”

The evening’s activities will also include the re-dedication of the renovated Elliott Swimming Pool, as well as remarks from Pennsylvania State Senator Maria Collett.

The June Supper is an opportunity for past, current and future camper families and friends, camp alumni, camp counselors and staff, as well as involved community members to visit College Settlement Camp ahead of the summer camp season, which begins Monday, June 20 and continues through Friday, Aug. 12.
