Camp College NJ 2017
August 2, 2017 - August 3, 2017
The New Jersey Association for College Admission Counseling (NJACAC) is thrilled to be hosting Camp College NJ again from August 2nd – August 3rd at Caldwell University.
What Camp College is and who attends:
Camp College NJ is an exciting opportunity for students from traditionally underserved backgrounds to learn more about the college admissions process. Specifically, this program is geared towards rising high school juniors and seniors who lack the resources they might need to find the best college matches and successfully complete the application process. Most students who have attended in the past have been low-income and/or the first in their families to attend college.
Highlights of Camp College include:
- Presentations and more personalized small group sessions that educate about the college admissions process and demystify the college experience.
- Individualized support from college admissions experts in areas such as researching colleges to find good matches, applying for financial aid, and filling out college applications.
- A college fair that puts students directly in contact with over 25 college admissions representatives.
- Meals in the dining hall and an overnight stay in the residence halls, providing a taste of life on a college campus.
- A career exploration workshop that emphasizes the connection between college and career.
- Mock College Interview session Costs:
There is no cost of attendance for students or chaperones for attending the program. Lodging and meals are also provided free of charge.
Because space is limited and there is no cost to participants, students must apply for this program.
