INFORMATION FOR RESIDENTIAL APPLICANTS
MISE provides supervised boarding for students coming from outside Accra who may need such services at an additional cost. We kindly advise prospective residential applicants to read the program requirements below carefully;
- Clothing: Warm weather clothing is appropriate for all occasions. Some people may enjoy wearing a sweater in our air-conditioned class rooms. Please bring an attire for the closing ceremony.
- Laundry: Laundry facilities are available for a fee. Please budget extra for this.
- Rooms: We are staying in a first class residential property in Accra. The accommodation is complete with rooms suitable for relaxing and small-group discussions.
- Telephone Service:We recommend that students bring a cell phone with enough recharge units. Foreign students will be provided with one at a fee.
- Personal Items: please bring a water bottle, toothpaste, toothbrush, bath soap, laundry soap, personal hygiene items, hangers, beach towel, alarm clock, and lotion. Additionally, each student must bring a pillow, bed sheets, and towels. All personal items of value should be labeled with the student’s name, and telephone number. MISE Foundation is not liable for loss, theft, or damage to personal belongings.
- Optional Items: Students may bring a guitar or other portable musical instrument, binoculars, laptop, camera, board games, playing cards,and tennis or handball gear. No video games, or televisions are permitted.
- Supervision: Mentors will live with students. Mentors will be present at all program activities.
- Rules and Regulations: There will be NO tobacco, alcohol, or drug use by students and mentors while attending the Camp. Prompt class attendance and proper behavior will be expected from all students. Students will be allowed to leave campus only with written parental approval in advance, specifying date, time, and destination. Students are expected to follow all Lincoln school rules and regulations and to respect Guest facilities. Parents will be billed for any damage caused by their children’s negligence. Students not following rules or not participating in classes will be sent home immediately after parents/guardians are notified of their impending arrival.
- Medical Treatment: An excellent Student Health Center is located on campus at Lincoln Community School should medical attention be necessary. If your child requires attention beyond the scope of the Student Health Center, we will use the nearest clinic from campus. Parents are responsible for the cost of treatment provided by the Student Health Center and any other health facility used by their children. Parents must inform the camp administrators about any Medical History of their children. Note: The MISE Foundation does not provide any medical insurance.
- Religious Services: There are several churches near the residential facility. If you wish for your child to attend cchurch/mosque services, please let us know and we will make arrangements.
- Absences: Participants are required to attend for the full duration of the program and participate in all planned activities. We strongly discourage overnight absences, as this takes away from the experiences of doing mathematics with peers and faculty. Parents are welcome to visit for a day and take their student out for lunch or dinner, but we discourage longer absences.
