If an applicant is not drawn in the lottery, that does not reflect the quality of her application or her potential to do well in engineering and science. We encourage applicants who are not selected to consider attending one of our many other summer programs.
The application deadline for Camp Reach is April 1. Students who have already submitted their applications will receive decisions by the end of April.
