Summer Options for Teenagers.
This guide to more than 1,000 summer programs for teenagers encompasses recreational and academic programs sponsored by colleges, universities, independent schools, foundations, museums, nonprofit organizations, and for-profit businesses. Every program listed accepts students age 13-18; some programs also accept participants older or younger. Ninety-nine percent of the programs are residential. A section titled "The Basics" contains information about age requirements, program location and length, admissions, costs, financial resources, opportunities for students with disabilities, and different program structures (programs abroad, programs on campus, field-based programs, research programs, studio and performing arts, outdoor adventure, sports, volunteer positions and internships, and work opportunities). In the "Quick Reference Tables," programs are grouped by topic and by program structure. Then in-depth descriptions are provided for each program, listed in alphabetical order by the sponsoring organization. The in-depth descriptions cover: program name, location, description, ages, requirements, levels offered, length, dates, class size, housing, cost, financial aid, academic credit, and admissions information. A list of reference books and organizations is included. Indexes provide access for: program names; low-cost, free, and paying programs; and programs accepting students with learning disabilities and with physical disabilities. (JDD)
