CAMP COLLEGE

This is not your average summer camp. Camp College immerses students in the college application and admission process to prepare them for the year ahead. Students will cover a variety of college topics: ACT prep,  college timelines, college and financial aid applications, essay and resume tips, and much more. Students also have the opportunity to travel for campus tours at local colleges and universities. All meals and lodging are provided. The best part-- camps are entirely free

To apply, you must be a rising senior (Class of 2021) AND meet one (1) of the following criteria:

  • Eligible for free or reduced lunch

  • Minority

  • First generation college student

 

****Camp College 2020 Update: 

The Get2College staff is closely monitoring information and updates regarding COVID-19, and we are committed to following federal, state, and city issued guidelines to help prevent the spread of the virus. We are also 100% committed to making decisions that have the health, safety, and well-being of the students and families we serve, our staff, and our colleagues in mind.  Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to cancel Camp College 2020, scheduled for June. Camp College involves a large group of students and staff together traveling to multiple locations throughout the state and as a precaution, we want to eliminate any risks to students.

While we are not holding Camp College this year, we ARE always here to help with your college planning needs. We’re available by text (https://get2college.org/text), online chat (get2college.org) or appointment (Contact Us or book online for an appointment). 

 

Why attend Camp College? 

“Information is power. And we know that many high school students lack the supports and critical access to information to guide them through the college process that will ultimately lead them to a career. Every element of Camp College is designed with those things in mind.” - Daniela, Get2College Counselor

“Camp College helped me prepare to take the ACT by teaching me test-taking strategies. I was also able to visit two college campuses—the University of Mississippi and Mississippi State University—where we stayed in the dorms and were introduced to college life. Camp College was awesome. I learned a lot and had fun while doing it.” -Hezekiah, former Camp College student
