How to Apply
To apply to Pre-Camp, submit a personal statement to help us better understand who you are and why you want to attend Pre-Camp. Respond to one of the following quotes in ANY WAY YOU WANT. For example, send us a short essay, poem, collage, drawing, song, or photograph, which can be submitted on an 8.5” x 11” piece of paper or CD/DVD. Be creative.
1 “Everybody makes a difference.”
2 “Success is built on relationships.”
3 “You can add value to everything.”
4 “You can reinvent yourself continually.”
We understand that summer is a very busy time for you, but a simple personal statement that shows some thought and communicates your desire to attend Pre-Camp is all we’re looking for. Please feel free to BE YOURSELF and include any additional information that you would like to share with us (hobbies, sports,
most memorable experience, etc.).
With your personal statement, please include a cover sheet with your name, home address, telephone number, and email address and residence hall, and remember that the deadline to apply to Pre-Camp is Friday, June 21! Be creative, have fun, and we look forward to receiving your personal statement!
