Our leadership camp for teens emphasizes learning — but not through academic-like instruction. Instead, think of the Longacre experience as a string of opportunities for your child. The flexibility means that high-achieving students like yours can advance as fast as they want.
You won’t find a summer camp like this anywhere else.
Students here have a little responsibility. Responsibility helps new students to feel included quickly.
Longacre is a student-driven program. This means that older, returning students in our Leadership Project set the pace.
Our leadership style emphasizes direct communication. Four nights a week we gather together to reflect on the day.
If you want to be successful as a young adult you have to learn independence as a teenager. It takes time to learn independence. The earlier you start, the better.
Longacre is college prep. We prepare students to get into college the old-fashioned way: by preparing them for success in college.
The answer is, it depends. It depends on whether the culture at the camp is growth-oriented.
There are three activity periods: morning, afternoon and evening. You’ll have 8-12 options.
It’s important to understand, you won’t always get your first choice. We think about how our actions affect other people. Sometimes you’ll put your needs aside so your friend can get what he wants.
