SAT Prep Camps Make College Admissions Prep More Fun

Slovenski Camp combines four hours of daily SAT prep with traditional summer camp activities. All of the outdoor fun helped make the intense studying a slightly less bitter pill for my daughter to swallow. The camp’s location on Panther Pond means kids enjoy swimming, kayaking, sailing and other water activities when they're not working. There's also a slew of on-land recreational opportunities such as volleyball, cross-country running and dodge ball. Evening campfires, sing-alongs and morning reveille are all Slovenski Camp traditions. The campground is also home to several six-day intensive sports camps, so not all of the kids are there for the SAT prep, adding to the diversity of the experience.
The cost includes all materials, even the loads of books and practice tests your kid takes home. It's not cheap, but it's certainly more reasonable than many NYC SAT prep classes. Plus, teenagers enjoy what will likely be their last camp experience.

This 20-day immersive camp is run by Education Unlimited  at Tufts University and includes SAT prep, help with crafting personal statements and visits to area colleges. It's also offered at West Coast locations.

The Princeton Review College Discovery Program – Boston, MA

Julian Krinsky Pre-College Programs – Philadelphia, PA
This program, run by Villanova University, allows high school students to build an enriching summer catered to their interests. Students can choose their length of stay, from one week, to multi-week sessions and can live on campus or commute while taking full- or half-day sessions. SAT Prep is just one of the myriad of options students can choose.
