All students at 4 Star Camps have the opportunity to participate in a college advising seminar. On the second Sunday of every session, one of our educators presents a seminar on the college admissions process. Students who choose to attend will:
Learn about the basics of college admissions: when are applications due, what makes a strong candidate, how can students select “safe,” “goal,” and “reach” schools
- Understand the financial aid process, including FAFSA preparation
- View sample admissions essays
- Develop and action plan and calendar for admissions deadlines
- Discuss standardized testing, especially the revised SAT
Campers also have the chance to visit two of the area’s universities for an additional fee. 4 Star Camps offers visits to the College of William and Mary and to Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) Parents should sign up for these excursions (which include an official campus tour and information session) on our registration page. All campers are invited to join a behind the scenes UVA tour on Wednesday evening each week during camp.
