Academic camps in the USA for foreign students

Academic camps in the USA for foreign students

Academic camps in the USA offer the study of the most popular subjects instead of the language, although this experience allows you to improve your knowledge of English in vivo and gain experience living on the campuses of prestigious universities. A good academic summer camp gives students the feeling that they are not only studying in the company of young people who are passionate about one thing with them, but also have a good rest. Some programs provide vacationers with free time, others a thought-out program of extracurricular activities, a number of academic camps work on the development of useful (extracurricular) skills - confidence, motivation, self-esteem, communication and leadership skills.

Today, almost every US university opens academic camps: many of them will be interesting for the student, but if you are looking for a course that will allow you to create a strong portfolio attractive to American colleges, then pay attention to the programs of top universities. Some of them are focused only on US citizens, but many are open to international students. These programs carry out rigorous selection, so students must confirm a high level of motivation and school performance. The cost of education in these courses varies: some courses are sponsored by foundations, others are fully paid by participants.

How to choose academic camps in the USA?

Camps with a rich extracurricular program, mini-holidays, Life Skills camps are very popular, but if parents want to provide long-term results, before choosing a course, you need to pay attention to:

  • Schedule - how rich the academic program is presented.
  • The experience of employees - whether they are experts in their academic field.
  • Duration of the program - the optimal time for intensive education is 2-3 weeks.
  • Academic camps with accommodation allow you to get a deeper experience, build long-term relationships, get a unique experience of living away from home.
