College Camp

We Start Growing Early and Never Stop

This year's middle school campers taught me that they are already thinking about college.  I had prepared a high school prep camp for them in July.  A few hours into the camp, I realized I had work to do when I noticed they were asking more questions about college than high school.
I quickly added much more college content.  We visited a college, took a career interest test, learned about college majors and had a teleconference with a college dean. 
An unexpected bonus of the class was that parents who saw their children's career interest test results decided to take the test themselves.  That just proves what I have always thought:  it is never too early or too late to learn about college because we never stop growing.

College Camp to the Rescue

This summer is the calm before the storm for rising high school seniors and their families.  In about 60 days,  high school seniors and their parents will face a mountain of complex decisions and tasks related to the college process.  Such families typically experience a variety of stressors and emotions including information overload, lots of tasks to accomplish under strict deadlines and sticker shock.
But it does not have to be that way.  Rising high school juniors and seniors can enroll in a college camp program in July that will take care of much of what looms before them.
