Registration is now open for Montana State University’s Peaks and Potentials program, an enrichment camp designed to give high-ability/high-potential students entering grades 5-7 the opportunity to explore special topics of interest and work with experts in various subject areas.

The camp will be held June 19-24 on the MSU campus. Academic, recreational and social activities offer students a chance to interact with their peers and sample campus life. Students may stay on campus for the week or commute to and from camp each day.

Sessions will include a variety of topics in STEM areas as well as the arts and humanities, including creative writing, inventions, game theory, water science and more. Evening activities include swimming, volleyball, soccer and others.

Instructors are MSU faculty, graduate students and experienced professionals from the area. University students and professionals act as director and counselors throughout the week. All classes emphasize personal instruction and small group interaction as well as a "hands-on" approach to learning.

The camp is sponsored by MSU Extended University.

Enrollment is limited, and the camp generally fills to capacity. Registration forms are available online at: or in the MSU Office of Continuing Education in 200 Culbertson Hall.
