Leadership Development

Summer Camps

Prep for Prep works with a number of summer camps to offer "camperships" for our students to attend camps at low or no cost. Summer camps are often the first time students experience being away from home. Students build teamwork skills, try new physical activities, and grow their self confidence and independence. 

Despite the uncertainties introduced by the COVID pandemic, we had over 50 students participate in the summer of 2022. We appreciate the outstanding opportunities that the following camps offered:

Belvoir Terrace Camp Wawenock
Birch Rock Camp Chewonki Camp for Boys
Camp Androscoggin Creative Arts & Athletics
Camp Becket YMCA Frost Valley YMCA
Camp Betsey Cox Kamp Kohut
Camp Greylock Kingswood Camp
Camp Nashoba North Netop Summer Camp
Camp Runoia Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts
Camp Sangamon Waukeela Camp for Girls
Camp Tapawingo Wohelo Camps

Brianna had such an awesome time at camp. She met wonderful people, tried new activities like kayaking and playing guitar, and conquered her fear of being away from home. We are truly grateful!
