Joshua House has made the transition from the school year to the summer vacation months.
Director of Joshua House, Jim Kilmartin, said there are many events currently underway at the building located at 123 W. 10th Street, Tyrone.
For the second year, Joshua House will host the Jhouse Juniors summer camp, which is geared towards elementary-aged kids.
Program activities for the Jhouse Juniors Program include: swimming, field trips to DelGrosso’s Park and Mt. Nittany, community service, indoor and outdoor games, arts and crafts and songs and skits.
Program hours are: 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. parent drop off; 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. camp activities and 3:30 to 5 p.m. parent pick-up.

Kilmartin said they received a grant from the Blair County Park and Recreation to install a full basketball court in the back of the building as well.
Upcoming events for Joshua House include a Fourth of July fireworks sale.
The 7th Annual Joshua House Street 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament is scheduled for July 21. More information about the tournament will appear in a future edition of The Daily Herald.
