Step 3: Click add.

Step 5: Submit your email NOTE: If you were a counselor last year, use the email you used last year. If you need help figuring out which email you used look for the confirmation email, or email us back and we’ll help you out.
Step 6: Fill out the application in one sitting, or the system will time you out. if you’re worried about running out of time, you can answer in a word doc and then paste your answers in.
