At Longacre’s leadership camp for teens, there’s lots of learning but not much instruction. Instead think of it as a string of opportunities. Our program allows high-achieving students to move fast. You won’t find a 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 Mentor Program set the pace.
Our leadership style emphasizes direct communication. Four nights a week we gather together to listen to our friends reflect on the day.
If you want to be successful as a young adult you need to be comfortable with your independence as a teenager. It takes time to become comfortable with independence. The earlier you start, the better.
Longacre is college prep. We prepare students to get into college by preparing them for 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. In a community, we look out for our friends.
