Yes, you can expect to learn a ton during your summer pre-college experience at Champlain College. But what most students remember just as much is the fun they have hanging out with an awesome group of people who are interested in the same things that they are. Far more than just a summer camp, students in this summer academy will create their own vibrant community. Here are some comments from students' Facebook posts about their experience at Champlain:
"I had a great time, made lots of new friends, learned a lot, developed a bunch of new skills, and found out some skills I didn't know I already had."
"Living in the dorms gave us a sense of independence. Faculty and staff treated us like grown-ups. I started to feel more like a confident, self-sufficient adult."
"This wasn't just some run-of-the-mill summer camp. The people who had put together the program really wanted us to learn and take something away with us... It is a great program and I was very lucky to be able to participate in it."
