Time To Hit The Road
What’s a summer vacation without a road trip? Boring! That’s why Blueprint packs in some memorable excursions as part of your pre-college experience. Week one is jam packed with on-campus activities and a whole lot of college prep. But, look out 2-week students! We hit the road on Sunday with an optional trip (usually to ride some coasters at an amusement park!). Then again on the second Wednesday, to explore city highlights and really get a taste for what living on campus would be like.
Blueprint does the planning, with careful attention to safety, transportation and details. You do the playing – with plenty of adventure on the agenda! The Blueprint Resident Advisor and staff you’ve come to know and love will be along for the ride, too. We keep it safe, and we keep it supervised.

The best experience of my daughter’s life. Her words. Thank you!
Blueprint was the best part of my summer. It gave me a taste of college and helped me discover the type of college I would like to attend. I would not pass up a chance to do this program.
By the second day we had each other laughing hysterically on our way back from the dining hall! I couldn’t believe how quickly we all became friends.
My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her week at George Washington University! It was a wonderful experience.
