Dear Summerfuel CAP Columbia Families:
This Sunday your student will be traveling to meet our staff on the campus of Columbia University. We’re very excited to get the program off to a great start!
Before your student leaves, I want to make certain that you have critical program details like our program address, on-call cellular number, and packing list. The program will be a busy, demanding, exciting two weeks – improving SAT performance, crafting better essays, and learning about the college selection and admissions process. We hope that your students are all eagerly anticipating their experience in Manhattan!
I’ve emailed out a packing list and program calendar, but if you haven’t received a message from me, feel free to get in touch by emailing me at the address listed below.
For day of travel, please make certain that both you and your student have the program cellular number handy – 917.805.6309. The program email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, and our program fax number is 917.591.5340
Here are a few things to note when packing:
- All bedding (sheets, blankets, pillows) and bath towels are provided.
- Wi-Fi is available for guests on campus within McBain Hall. Staff will advise regarding set up.
- Should your student forget a toiletry item, notebook or other small personal item, it’s easy to make that purchase in the area; staff will be happy to assist with this.
- Any paperwork not yet submitted (medical form, rules, parent questionnaire, housing) should be printed and brought with your student to the program.
All students traveling to the program via place should fly into JFK International Airport, where they will be met in the baggage claim area of their terminal by a Summerfuel staff member or professional driver. International travelers will be met in the ARRIVALS area after they have collected their luggage and clear customs/immigration.
Any student traveling to an airport other than JFK can have transportation arranged by Summerfuel, but there will be an additional cost.
We’ll be living on Columbia’s campus in McBain Hall this year, which is slightly removed from the library/campus quad that is often featured in films. You’ll find a link to a PDF map of campus below – McBain is on 113th Street and Broadway, and the address is listed below.
562 West 113th Street
New York, NY 10027
If you are driving, please plan to get to campus between 2 pm and 5 pm on Sunday.
Please send all mail for your student to the address below:

We’re looking forward to an exciting and rewarding program and can’t wait for everyone to arrive. Please feel free to be in touch with any questions, and we’ll see your students on Sunday!
