Are you a high-schooler looking for an adventure-filled experience that challenges you as a leader and looks great on your college resume? Consider one of several summer-camp offerings at Norwich University.
In order to protect the well-being of our community and visitors, we will be changing the format of our summer camps. Summer camps will not be held on campus this year. In the spirit of continuing to offer high school students valuable leadership and skill based experiences, we will host a series of live and recorded events over the summer — AT NO COST. All students who have registered and already paid for a FLC, Drill or the Esports camp will receive a full refund.
