We've been hard at work for the past two months carrying out our biggest summer program season yet! Now that the season is just about wrapped up and every student has returned home, it's time to take a look back at what we accomplished!
Some incredible overall facts and statistics about our programs this summer:
This summer, the majority of our programs were based out of the northeast, with some traveling as far south as Washington DC. Students across all groups enjoyed time in Boston, experienced life in an American school dorm, and participated in higher education-focused stops at top schools in the region. Across all journeys, students were patient, positive, and ready to learn!
In addition, two of our programs visited California, including our recurring NASA Camp (which also travels to Orlando, Florida) as well as the first run of our West Coast Study Exchange! Both programs utilized study-forward models to ensure students get the most out of their visits, and also included visits to Silicon Valley and the greater bay area!
It's already time to start recruiting counselors for the Summer traveling camps! This Summer is shaping up to be our busiest season yet - in addition to the launch of our residential Summer S.T.E.A.M. Camp at Cheshire Academy as well as our ALCI Program at Boston University, we are bringing back our vanguard Road to Harvard and NASA programs, plus launching our new West Coast Basketball Camp! As such, we're going to need all hands on deck to make sure each program is a success!
We've been graced with some really amazing counselors for our past program seasons, and hope to continue the trend! Our counselors are capable, professional and very 靠谱 (a common Chinese phrase for "reliable")! If you're a current college student or recent graduate with an understanding of Chinese language and culture, this is the position for you! We are also looking for participants with expertise in the following areas:
This summer is already slated to be Boston Roundtable's busiest yet, and one camp we're especially excited to open to the public is our Summer S.T.E.A.M. Camp at Cheshire Academy! We've been busy with the school for the past several months to design the perfect camp, and can't wait to share it with our students!
This past week we tabled in Carlisle and Cohasset MA to promote the program, and have already launched our social media campaign to spread the word! Thank you to these towns for welcoming us and giving us a chance to spread the word!
We are also thrilled to be able to offer this program at a discounted rate thanks to Cheshire as well as our own American Ambassador Scholarship. We care deeply about furthering our vision of "Promoting Education on an International Scale," and hope the accessibility of this camp will allow people of all backgrounds to have a seat at the 圆桌, or roundtable!
