The colleges listed on each camp event have committed to attend. We plan on having them in attendance unless some unforeseen situation occurs such as personal family emergency, termination from their program, acceptance of job at another program or they schedule a camp of their own during these dates. In any of these events, Rising Prospects will attempt to fill their spot with another quality college program. In the event of inclement weather, camp will be conducted indoors.
