Join the staff of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum for the annual summer "Camp 43: Leader of One, Leader of Many!" Focusing on the importance of leadership and the decision-making process, participants will discover how values and personal beliefs affect their decisions, develop skills for working with diverse groups, and hear first-hand from high-level business executives about the methods they use to make decisions. The experience includes group activities, discussions, and presentations from prominent and successful community and government leaders.
25 high school students who will graduate in 2017, 2018, or 2019 will be selected to attend the 3-day summer camp. There is no cost for the camp. Lunch and snacks are provided daily along with a formal dinner on June 23 to conclude the camp. All participants are responsible for their own daily transportation to and from the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, located on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Interested students should submit this application form, answers to 3 short essay questions, 2 professional letters of recommendation, and a resume to Bush43Education@nara.gov. The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum will accept applications until April 14, 2017.
