[CANCELED] The Concord Review History Camp - for Middle School Students

2020 TCR Summer Middle School History Camp is canceled

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we've decided to offer online seminars for high school students this summer. So, we regret to inform you that we have to cancel the middle school camp since some of the daily schedule requires outdoor activities and museum tours.

The Concord Review is committed to bringing the TCR History Camp for middle school students back in 2021. We look forward to working with you next summer.

Please take care and be well. Thanks for your interest in History and in academic writing.


TCR History Camp is an intensive, two-week academic summer program in Boston where middle-school students—rising seventh-, eighth-, and ninth-graders—will get to read, think, talk and write about history. Students in the program will also read three Singles of published TCR essays. They will undertake their own short research project in history. And they will be led on brief excursions to museums and historical sites around the city, giving them a glimpse of Boston’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.
