SUMMER CAMPS FOR TEENS AND PRE-TEENS from At The Core

compiled by Beth Probst, At The Core

[some national, some Ohio]

The “dog days” of summer are a great time to explore a student’s interests away from the daily grind of school–what do they like to do, what skills do they want to explore–all great stuff when thinking about their future! We’ve gathered up a few of our academic/career-minded favorites to share with you.

Important quote we read from one college admissions counselor…“It’s not the program/job/internship/experience – it’s what the student takes from it. There is no ‘hierarchy’ that says one experience is ‘better’ than another.” Just something to keep in mind–counselors will not view a program more favorably simply because it costs more money.

Be aware…some of these programs haven’t posted their new dates for 2018 yet so tuck this email away somewhere you can find it later. Pay attention to deadlines, pricing, and age restrictions.

Can you please take a moment to [share this] with your friends? It’s one of the most popular we do every year. They can join our mailing list too!
