BOZEMAN – Registration is now open for Montana State University’s Peaks and Potentials program, a weeklong enrichment camp offered June 15-20 on the MSU campus.

Peaks and Potentials is designed to give high-ability/high-potential students entering grades 5-7 next fall the opportunity to explore special topics of interest and work with experts in various subject areas. A signature from an appropriate school official is necessary for the student's acceptance.

Sessions for this summer's camp include a variety of topics in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) as well as the arts and humanities, including jewelry making, honeybee investigation, world music, nutrition, water science, renewable energy and more. Evening activities include swimming, volleyball, soccer and others.

Students have the option of staying on campus or commuting to and from camp each day. Enrollment is limited, and the camp generally fills to capacity. Registrations are available online at: http://eu.montana.edu/peaks/, or in the MSU Office of Continuing Education, 200 Culbertson Hall.

Instructors are MSU faculty, graduate students and experienced professionals from the area. University students and professionals act as directors and counselors throughout the week. All classes emphasize personal instruction and small group interaction as well as a “hands-on” approach. Academic, recreational and social activities offer students a chance to interact with their peers and sample campus life.

The camp is sponsored by MSU Extended University. For more information, contact MSU Extended University at ContinuingEd@montana.edu or (406) 994-6683.
