QUICK TAKE: An intensive program that helps young adults

improve and develop writing skills. Located in the beautiful

town of Alfred in upstate New York, is a great opportunity for

your student to begin searching for college. Students experience

the college environment and dorm life first hand.

AGE REQUIREMENT: 15–17

FEES: Application fee, $75 (deadline, May 24); boarding fee,

$395–$425.

DATES: One session of 5 days in June or July

BACKGROUND: In 2000, the university decided to expand its

offerings by holding summer camps for young adults who will

soon be prospective college students.

DESCRIPTION: The program at Alfred University gives young

adults the opportunity to improve their writing through lectures

and workshops. The program also delves into reading

and text analysis. A strong program in creative writing is also

offered. The goal is to create well-written work suitable for

high school, and even college, courses. Your teenager will

have time for recreational activities and a chance to meet fellow

students. This writing program is but one of the many

programs offered at Alfred University. It also provide camps

in astronomy, art and design, and music. There are job opportunities

for writers aged nineteen and older.

OUR TAKE: Alfred University is located in a safe, picturesque

area, but it is a bit far from the airport (Rochester International

Airport is 65 miles away). Transportation can be provided

(although there is a charge) by the university. Your child will

be challenged in the art of writing and in the revision of original

work. This program would be suitable for great writers,

or those who want to become a more mature writer.

OUR RECOMMENDATION: This is a serious program. RAs (resident

advisers) are with the kids for the week and work to make

it a social as well as a learning experience. Because writing is

a skill needed in today’s job market, every student will benefit

from the opportunity to hone his or her skills.
