Louisiana GEAR UP Summer Camps and Summer Camp Partner Programs provide one-week or longer college readiness and academic preparatory programs for rising 9th and 10th grade students (6th through 12th grade students for institutions serving Sabine Parish) currently enrolled in Louisiana GEAR UP schools. Camps provide access to a college/career environment and promote experiential learning through themed activities. Each experience fosters growth and develops critical thinking, problem-solving, and leadership skills through career exploration, goal planning and more.

“It was an opportunity for me to see things I wouldn’t see, at a different camp through a different program.”

Kyrin Dotson, 9thgrade Louisiana GEAR UP student
