What is GAP I?

The GAP I camp involves a one week experience for any new student taking the much awaited journey into a High School.  

The goals of the camp are:

  • To support the successful transition of rising 9th graders, especially AVID students, into the high school environment.
  • To make students aware of the school’s AP program, Bright Futures, and college/university requirements.
  • To increase student success in the AP Human Geography course and on exam performance.           
                
There is no cost to participate in the week long experience.  Students attend academic classes and participate in activities at their new high school.  They get to meet the teachers, meet other students and begin to make the friendships that may last a life-time. 

WHO MAY ATTEND?

The camp targets the rising 9th grade students entering any of Hillsborough County Public High Schools. The maximum number of students that we can service per school is limited. To get more information about participating in GAP I summer camp just visit the guidance office at the high school your student will be attending in the fall.
