The Concord Review Summer Program - History Camp 2019 - Apply below


TCR History Camp is an intensive, two-week academic summer program in New York City where middle-school students -- rising seventh-, eighth-, and ninth-graders -- will get to read, write, talk, and think about history with two professional American historians, one of them the editor of The Concord Review. Students in the program will read and analyze an entire book of historical nonfiction, Paul Johnson’s Sam Patch, The Famous Jumper, about a celebrated early nineteenth-century daredevil. They will undertake their own short research project based on the life and times of an individual from the past. And finally they will be led on excursions to museums and historical sites around the city, giving them a glimpse of New York’s vast and rich historical legacy.

While the TCR Summer Program provides first-rate personal coaching on serious History research papers, participation cannot guarantee publication. The Concord Review selects about 5% of the papers submitted. While we welcome submissions from students who have attended the TCR Summer Programs, their papers will be considered alongside other papers submitted by diligent students from many countries.
