BOZEMAN – Registration is now open for Montana State University’s Peaks and Potentials program, a week-long enrichment camp for high-potential students entering grades 5-7 in the fall, offered June 18-23 on the MSU campus in Bozeman.

Peaks and Potentials is designed to offer students the opportunity to explore special topics of interest and work with experts in various subject areas.

Sessions for this summer's camp include a variety of topics in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM. There will also be topics in the arts and humanities, including creative writing, law, film making, paper making and more.

Students have the option of staying on campus or commuting to and from camp each day. Evening activities include swimming, volleyball, soccer and more.

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. The academic, recreational and social activities offer students a chance to interact with their peers and sample campus life.
