Earn three transferable college credits, while making a difference as a mentor, coach, friend, teacher, leader, and hero through Gratz College (Americans only).

For our Staff who successfully complete and earn an ‘A’ in this course, Camp will reimburse staff half of the tuition ($375). And for staff who return the following summer and complete their summer employment, camp will reimburse and additional $375.

 2. Or alternatively, Create an Internship For College Credit

 To do this, you must:

  • be currently enrolled in a University, College, or Technical School.
  • contact your college advisor in advance and ask them if you can use your summer camp experience as a practicum, internship, or other course credit.
  • complete the course, practicum or internship per your college’s parameters and complete your summer employment.
