Peaks and Potentials is designed to give high-ability/high-potential students who will be in grades 5-7 in the fall 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 the sciences, arts and humanities, including filmmaking, brain science, bird watching, microbiology 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. Academic, recreational and social activities offer students a chance to interact with their peers and sample campus life.
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 through local schools and online at: http://eu.montana.edu/peaks/. A recommendation from an appropriate school official is required for the student's acceptance.
The camp is sponsored by MSU Extended University. For more information, contact Susan Byorth at email@example.com or 243-5701.
