SUMMER PROGRAMS AT VILLANOVA
Students in these programs live in the dorms at Villanova University together. You can choose any combination of these summer programs and not even have to switch dorm rooms! Experience evening activities, weekend trips and dorm life with other students your age.
WEEKEND AND EVENING ACTIVITIES
One of the most memorable parts of JKCP are all the fun evening activities and weekend trips.
Dorms at Villanova
Most of the rooms are spacious doubles and complete with beds, desks, chairs, and dressers. Each wing of the dorm has bathrooms you’ll share with your dorm mates. Plus, spacious lounges in the dorms are a great place to hang out with friends.
You’ll also have a team of residential advisors who live in the dorm on the same floor as you. Residential advisors are responsible for helping you make friends, dorm life, entertainment, evening activities and weekend trips.
You’ll eat breakfast, lunch and most dinners during the week at the campus dining center. On the weekends, breakfast on Saturday and brunch and dinner on Sunday are served on campus. The food at camp is typical of a college cafeteria. You are given the freedom to make your own choices. Salad, fruit, vegetables, and different hot entrees accompany each lunch and dinner.
We also understand you might like to eat out, which is why we have built in one evening per week to eat off campus at a restaurant or food court. You will also dine off campus while on your weekend trips. Maybe you want to take the time to sit down with friends at the beach or grab a quick bite on your way to the next site in NYC. Off-campus meals are at your expense.
The food is typical of a college cafeteria, and you are given the freedom to make your own choices. There are always multiple options available for each meal including vegetarian choices. If you have special dietary needs or allergies, please contact us prior to your arrival.
If you don’t feel well, just let your residential advisor know and we’ll help you get better in no time. Chances are you won’t need it, but we have a nurse and doctor on-call and are minutes from the region’s top hospitals. As long as you keep taking any medicine you normally do at home, eat right and get some sleep, you should have nothing to worry about.
Safety on and off campus is always our number one priority. We understand as high school aged students you generally want a little more freedom. We have found a residential advisor to student ratio of approximately 1:10 is the perfect balance of freedom coupled with safe supervision. You’re always required to stay in groups of three or more and required to check-in at regular intervals during any off-campus trips or activities.
