Red Cross Leadership Development Camp

Hey guys

This summer, I am participating in the Red Cross Leadership Development Camp. This is a 1-week camp where we meet from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM. We learn leadership skills, self-reflection, and many other valuable skills.

I was wondering how good this will look on my college application. Will it be a good thing to add to my resume?

What is the application process like? I can't tell if everyone is accepted to the camp or if only select members. Take a read through this article and it might help breakdown the impact this program will have on your application: https://blog.collegevine.com/how-to-decide-if-a-summer-program-is-worth-it/.

If the program isn't free (and it doesn't look like it is) and if it doesn't have a competitive application process it typical means it won't have a big impact on admissions. BUT, that doesn't mean the program isn't worth doing. You can still learn a ton and it might end having a big impact on you and could be included in your application essays.
