Taking Your Summer Experience to the Next Level

Ahh, summer. Those long, sunny days and warm nights are the things dreams are made of! But, for many high school students, summer isn't just about swimming pools, beach vacations, and hanging out with friends. Summer is an opportunity to take experiential learning (and fun) to the next level. Whether you've spent your summers at sleep-away camp, sports camp, or even recreational day camp, we will show you how our pre-college academic programs give you that "next level" of independence with the added advantage of academic enrichment, cultural immersion, fun, and friends from around the world!

Join us for a lively conversation with our Campus Specialists for Summer Discovery at UCLA and the University of Michigan and learn about the importance of making the most of your free time, especially summer vacation. They will be available to answer all your questions about what it's really like to live and learn on a college campus as well as give you tips for choosing activities outside the classroom as you journey through these formative high school years and prepare for the transition to college.

In this webinar you'll learn:

  • How a Summer Discovery experience is similar and different from a traditional camp experience
  • How you'll spend your time both inside and outside the classroom
  • What it is like to spend the summer on a college campus
  • How to select the campus that right for you
  • And more!

Plus, we'll be sharing our multipage Summer Planning Guide and Summer Fun Checklist with all our webinar attendees.
