I think you should try it and see what happens. I don't think it will make much difference whether you have a planned Summer's absence this year or next. But I may be mistaken.

That bit isn't clear; from reading that alone I can't tell whether, ȁit” means the Summer camp or the job application.
What I meant by 2020 is that I can put it on hold for another year,
I still don't think that would be a problem. Besides, you will run out of money if you don't get a job and an income.
. . . If I tell them first, how seriously would they take me if I'm only going to work a few months and then take off for the summer?
That would worry me a lot if I were interviewing you, however.
I'm not in a course. I dropped my graduate school program a year ago . . . .
Lots of people say things like that, and unfortunately many of them don't fulfil that intention, I am afraid.
I was going to go finish the degree after getting started in the career.
