For overnight campers: Each dorm room accommodates two students. Campers can select a roommate by writing the roommates name in the appropriate space of the online enrollment application.
ASMS is a safe campus: AIMS students are not permitted to leave campus during camp, unless a parent picks them up. The campus is completely enclosed by an eight-foot iron fence. ASMS employs full-time security guards who patrol the campus. We also use cameras to record multiple parts of the campus at all times of the day. Further, our Residence Hall staff is made up of trained professionals, all of whom have college degrees and who actually live in the dorms during the AIMS camp. AIMS campers are under constant and consistent supervision during the entire day. The camp is structured to keep students constructively occupied at all times. During overnight camp, when students finish school they take part in supervised activities. We also encourage students to have cell phones at camp so they can keep in constant contact with their parents. Parents from every county have entrusted ASMS with their students and the school takes that responsibility seriously. Finally, female campers are not allowed in the boys’ dorm and male campers are not allowed in the girls’ dorm.
