What is the application deadline?
We accept applications from January 15 through April 15. Because we review them as they arrive, please apply as soon as possible because there are a limited number of spaces available.
How and when will I be notified that I’ve been accepted into the camp?
You'll be notified by email, and that email will also include payment instructions and a request for information regarding allergies, medication, or other particular needs of the student.
When will I arrive and depart from camp?
Check-in for each camp is between 2-3 p.m. Sunday, and check-out is at noon on Friday.
What do I bring to camp?
You should bring clothes, towels, sheets, pillow, and toiletries. You’ll have computer access for all camp activities, but you’re welcome to bring your own laptop. Meals will be provided, and you can bring snacks to keep in your residence hall room. Single beds in residence halls are usually 'extra long,' but ordinary sheets can typically be stretched to fit.
What is the camp fee?
The camp fee is $900, and it covers all camp-related expenses, including room, board, and access to campus facilities. Students are automatically considered for scholarships. Please see the Financial Aid page.
How do I pay the camp fee?
The easiest way to pay is online by electronic check at www.lvc.edu/summerpay. Alternately, you can mail a personal check to Patrick Brewer, ATT: Summer Scholars Program, Lebanon Valley College, 101 N. College Avenue, Annville, PA 17003.
Who will supervise students? Is campus safe?
Students will live in a residence hall with Resident Assistants, who are current LVC students chosen specifically for that task. The residence halls are always locked, and LVC public safety officers are always on duty. The camp director can be contacted at any time by the Resident Assistants.
What will happen in case of an emergency?
If a student gets sick or injured, parents/guardians will be contacted. In case of an emergency, the student will be transported to the nearest hospital.
Do you accept applications from international students?
Yes, we welcome applications from international students.
I'm traveling to the camp by plane/train, how do I get to campus?
We'll pick you up in Harrisburg at the International Airport (MDT) or at the Amtrak Station at about 1 p.m. on Sunday and drop you off by 1:30 p.m. on Friday.
