Peaks and Potentials is designed to give high-ability/high-potential students who will be entering grades 5-7 in the fall the opportunity to explore special topics of interest and work with experts in various subject areas. A recommendation from an appropriate school official is necessary for the student's acceptance.
Sessions for this summer's camp include a variety of topics in the sciences, arts and humanities. Topics include metalworking, Yellowstone ecology, creative writing, and biology. 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. 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/
The camp is sponsored by MSU Extended University. For more information, contact Susan Byorth at firstname.lastname@example.org or (406) 994-6683.
