2020 Mentor Application 
Saint Mary's University of Minnesota on July 27-29, 2020 - Cancelled

On behalf of MACAC’s Committee on Inclusion, Access and Success, thank you for your interest in becoming a mentor! We have had very successful events from 2015-2018, and look forward to welcoming back great professionals to serve as mentors in 2019!

Over the past three years every Camp College Mentor has indicated they would recommend this experience to their colleagues. When asked what they enjoyed most about Camp College they responded:

  • “Having the opportunity to meet and get to know my mentees and have honest, candid, and personal conversations about the college search/application process.  These conversations were more about the process, access to support services, and exploring majors/options/institutions, rather than recruitment related.”

  • “Getting to know all of the mentors and mentees. There were a lot of fun sessions and both days felt very relaxed (I liked not having to stick too much to a time schedule). “

  • “I think the small group settings that allowed us to begin building relationships with the students. It took little time to feel like we were all a part of something unique and special.

Responsibilities for mentors:

  • Attend June 6 training session and report to Camp College and stay through the duration of the program

  • Serve as a mentor for up to three pre-assigned students.
  • Guide mentees through various structured activities throughout camp and commit to continuing communication with mentees after the camp (a contact every six weeks is suggested).
  • Review online training materials prior to camp.

You are welcome to lodge at the host college free of charge, or you can book a room at various hotels in the area at your own expense. Lodging will also be available for you the evening prior to camp.  All meals and snacks will be provided by the host college and MACAC. Please note that MACAC will reimburse mileage up to 100 miles.

Thank you so much for your support of Camp College! If you have any questions, please contact Katie Asfeld at asfeldk@augsburg.edu or 612-330-1586.
