Tools 4 Life Summer Camp | Canceled

April 8, 2020 - The ANC Admin Team has decided to use an abundance of caution and cancel all ANC summer camps for the 2020 season. We are hopeful it will be a relief to parents and campers to have a definitive decision made early on about this issue. It is also in the best interest of the camp counselors to have advanced notice. We all are sad about the necessity of this decision. We know that our camps are much-anticipated rites of passage for many students. Please contact ali.durand@ancss.org about refunds. 

Tools 4 Life is a career and life skills camp designed to help teenagers gain the tools and confidence needed to take the next step after high school. This camp offers a unique opportunity for you to learn and grow through a variety of experiences.

Tools 4 Life is open to incoming high school juniors and seniors. The camp offers seven days of activities and workshops in a rich environment of mentoring, personal growth and networking for life. During camp, we hold workshops and activities on campus, and also visit nearby colleges and take a career day trip. Campers are housed in dormitories and meals are included.

Typical Camp Activities     

  • College campus visit to one or two area colleges – In the past we have visited Penn, Temple, Princeton, Monmouth, Haverford, Rutgers
  • Off Campus Career Day – In the past we have visited places like The New York Times with Neil Genzlinger, Presbyterian Hospital with Mehmet Oz, Architecture with David Hotson
