This year, we will offer four sessions at three different locations: two in Harrisburg and two in Philadelphia. Harrisburg University will host a two week session and a one week session while we’re currently solidifying who will be hosting both Philadelphia sessions. Both offer the same program and benefits, just within different time frames and locations.
