Campers will receive four hours per day of instruction that will help them prepare for
the Scholastic Aptitude Test. Our SAT tutors use the highly regarded
Maine Prep material to help students
kick-start their academic preparation for the
College Board exams. This program excels at equipping students with the skills they
need to maximize their potential on standardized tests in the fall.
The Maine Prep curriculum teaches specific content and test-taking techniques, and builds confidence heading into the test. SAT preparation such as essay writing practice will also help students in many of their other school classes.
Campers will be in class for two hours in the morning and two in the afternoon. We limit the class size to eight so that each student has ample time to ask questions and receive personalized feedback on their testing strengths and weaknesses. Each day campers must use the SAT word of the day in a meaningful sentence before they can go in for dessert.
In between classes the campers will be able to participate in summer camp recreational activities or summer athletic training led by camp counselors. Recreational activities include kayak paddling, swimming, dodgeball, and beach volleyball. Training options include soccer, running, jump rope, medicine ball drills, or splitting wood with an axe.
Each evening features a campfire that includes contests, readings, music, and encouragement for high standards such as hard work, initiative, preparation, and community service. The SAT Prep camp program strives to help campers discover harmony between standardized test preparation and all the other educational efforts they make for their body, mind, and spirit.
Camp counselors include college students who have had diverse and successful experiences as honor roll students, athletes, actors, musicians, and community service volunteers. Camp counselors excelled in school, and are terrific role models for campers who are trying to find their way through high school classes, social distractions, family life, civic life, and the demands of extracurricular high school music, debate, and sports programs. Our staff emphasizes teaching, encouragement, motivation, and humor during the five day program.
Campers will be closely supervised at night by counselors in the cabin and counselors on patrol between the girls' cabin area and the boys' cabin area and throughout the peninsula.
