Before Starting an Application
When creating an account with CampDoc, please use an email address that you will check often as this will be the email address YAI will use when notifying students of their application status, acceptance, payment information, and last minute reminders. Please do not use student school emails as sometimes those accounts are deactivated over the summer.
Complete Applications Include:
- 100% completion of Participant Information in CampDoc. Please note: CampDoc's progress tracker will jump to complete as soon as any information is inputted into a field - even if the field is not yet complete. Please be certain the essay/student statement/artists sample is complete. YAI Staff will not review applications if there is missing information.
- Art, writing or poetry samples uploaded into the appropriate spot in CampDoc.
- Most recent report card in whatever form your school reports progress at school. If you have not receieved a spring report card yet, a fall report card will be adequate. Please upload this into the appropriate spot in CampDoc.
