The Boarding School Experience

Wondering what life is like at boarding school? Find out this summer during The Boarding School Experience Camp. One week, four boarding schools and a lifetime of fun memories await the campers of TBSE. Campers will explore and learn about the benefits of boarding schools and why they are so amazing from students and faculty at each school visited. The entire group of campers will move and visit a different school each day as they receive VIP treatment as visiting guests. There will be no selling or pressure of any type but rather the conversations and tours will be fun and informational and will show and share examples of how residential schools work and how they help students. This camp will also include fun events to wrap up the week and allow new friendships to flourish. TBSE is endorsed by a national group, The Association of Boarding Schools (TABS).
