Bowdoin Bound Celebrates 13 Years this Summer!

On July 26th, more than 40 Bowdoin students, chaperones and educators will board a bus and head up to Brunswick, Maine for a wonderful week of camp and educational activities. The younger group (6th through 9th grade) will enjoy  5 fun-filled days at the Bowdoin Day Camp while the high school students  will make college visits to schools throughout New England. The older students will also work on their applications & college lists, engage in mock interviews, and attend a college essay prep class.  Both of the groups  spend several hours in the classroom discussing books and getting a feel for academic life at college. As in the past, the week at Bowdoin will be 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
