Summer

In 2013, we launched a new summer program to build on gains made in our school year programming. Our summer program includes four main components:Reading

  • Intensive Reading: Participants read challenging texts to build the literacy skills necessary for success in college and beyond.
  • College & Career Exploration: Teens visit colleges, create resumes, and participate in mock interview sessions to build skills for college and the workplace.
  • Philanthropy: Teens are given over $2,500 to give away to local charities. Teens must pitch their chosen charities Lonely Camelto a live audience, building research and communication skills in an effort to secure the largest grants for their chosen organizations.
