IMAGINE . . . Leading by Example!

Living Options

Residential students live in the Randolph Residence Hall and dine on the Duke University East campus. They are expected to have the independence and maturity to make responsible decisions for themselves about their health and safety, to interact cooperatively with other members of the program community, and to manage their time wisely with regard to assignments, both in and out of class.

All day campers must check in on Monday morning at the East Duke on Duke's East Campus between 9:00 - 9:30 am. You may park in the lots indicated on the map and along Campus Drive at the main entrance. At check-in, campers will pick up class assignments, camp T-shirt, writing supplies, and other important camp information.
