2019 Intellectual Boot Camp

Intellectual Boot Camp

Originally a part of the Alcuin Internship, the Intellectual Boot Camp is a now a week-long seminar open to 20 to 30 college students and recent graduates. These intense yearly seminars will feature professors and journalists who can speak into our current moment as well as allow students a chance to meet and interact with like minded peers. The Intellectual Boot Camp exists because there is a critical need for students to learn to love the foundations of Western Civilization and understand why those foundations should be protected.
