Hi, I am currently a sophomore and I plan on applying to numerous summer camps (which may or may not include the likes of Ross, MathCamp, PROMYS, HSHSP, COSMOS, etc.) for 2013. However, I am concerned about the application essays; this will be the first time ever I will write application essays for anything, and I am thus greatly inexperienced in this matter.
Should essays for such applications be written like college essays, in which one should "show rather than tell"? They shouldn't be a direct straightforward answer to the prompt, right? Basically, how should I go about writing these essays?
Also, are there any resources for a beginner such as myself? Books, websites, sample, essays, etc.?
