Annual Diversity Camp

The Annual Diversity Student Camp is a one week camp for high school students in the 10th-12th grade that focuses on critical concerns that are apparent in the real world. Every year the theme changes, this year it will focus on the influence of Diversity in all academic majors ranging from the health sciences to liberal arts. Along with college readiness, camp will focus on inclusion and acceptance of varying cultures, a service component, and workshops to develop leadership skills. Diversity Camp will also offer opportunity for active participation on workshop topics such as, financial aid, SAT prep, time management, one-to-one active mentoring with current Misericordia University Students, hunger simulation, multicultural awareness, and team building.
