While some summer pre-college programs are more academics-heavy, most schedule plenty of leisure activities, including local “field trips,” which may tie into the subjects students are studying. You may not have the daily arts-and-crafts periods you had as a kid at summer camp, where you made those sweet popsicle-stick picture frames, but even the more studious college preview programs give students at least some free time—true to the college experience!
