Summer 2018 at Milton Hershey School

Summer is in full swing at Milton Hershey School, and so is the school’s Year-Round Experiences (YRE) program. Throughout the summer, students have the opportunity to participate in a multitude of enriching activities, internship opportunities, and real-world experiences.

Keep up with MHS students’ summer learning activities by viewing highlights below.


Week 1

Students enjoyed swimming in the outdoor pool and the opening of the Spartan Ice Cream Center. The younger students reeled in the week fishing!
