Food, lodging, amazing speakers, real life application, and a boatload of fun are all covered in the registration price. So besides your flight to Michigan or the gas you use to get to the camp (don’t forget your road trip snacks too), all you need to pay is the registration price!
Sure! APEX is pretty busy during the mornings and evenings, but lots of students work on assignments and their studies while at camp. There are several free hours during the afternoon and later in the evening, and wifi is available in most buildings in the camp. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find a study buddy!
The camp is able to accommodate pretty much any allergy under the sun. Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll do our best to accommodate you!
If you want to take advantage of the shuttle and not have to rent your own car, please fly into the Gerald R. Ford International Airport (GRR).
Yes! We will have at least two shuttles between GRR and the camp. The fee for the shuttle will be around $35, but we’ll be sure to let you know the exact details as APEX gets closer.
If you’re driving in, be sure to arrive by 5, that way you can get settled into your cabin before dinner. If you’re flying, please schedule your flights to arrive by 3:00pm on Saturday the 17th, and leave after 3:00pm on the 21st.
