Bowdoin Bound Celebrates 12 Years this Summer!

On July 20th, more than 40 Bowdoin students, chaperones and educators boarded a bus and headed up to Brunswick, Maine for a wonderful week of camp and educational activities. The younger group (6th through 9th grade) enjoyed 5 fun-filled days at the Bowdoin Day Camp while the high school students made college visits to schools throughout New England. The older students also worked on their applications & college lists, engaged in mock interviews, and attended a college essay prep class.  Both of the groups  spent several hours in the classroom discussing books and getting a feel for academic life at college. As in the past, the week at Bowdoin was a great mixture of fun and education.  WBAL radio in Baltimore profiled Bowdoin Bound before we departed for Maine in 2011:  http://www.wbal.com/absolutenm/templates/story.aspx?articleid=76628&zone...

Kids are Bowdoin Bound

The summer of 2014 marked Bowdoin Bound's 12th year in operation as we brought more than 40 inner city students up to Brunswick, Maine to the campus of Bowdoin College to experience college life.  Several years ago, Bowdoin's newspaper "The Orient" featured an article about the program. One of the students featured in this piece, Tyrelle Johnson, is a sophomore at Bowdoin.  Click to read the article in its entirety.
