Weekend at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University Draws Over 1,300

Mar 10, 2015

On Saturday, March 7 and Sunday, March 8, CSFP hosted its 10th and largest Weekend at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University. Over 1,300 scholarship recipients and their family members joined CSFP in a visit to the Academy and toured the collection and special exhibits throughout the day. This popular cultural outing is an early-spring highlight for many CSFP families. Says one mother of her family’s trip “It gives the kids something different to do, something educational. And the butterflies! The kids just love it.”

The Weekend at the Academy is just one of the additional supports CSFP provides for the families of children in its program. Read more about how CSFP supports Philadelphia families.

CSFP would like to thank volunteers from SEI, TD Bank, Stantec, Aberdeen Asset Management, and our Parent Network for their help; and the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, for its continued partnership in bringing this opportunity to scholarship recipients.
