BOZEMAN - Registration is now open for Montana State University's Peaks and Potentials program, a week-long enrichment camp offered June 19-24 on the MSU campus. Peaks and Potentials is designed to give high-ability/high-potential students entering grades 5-7 (in Fall 2011) 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, including ceramics, Yellowstone ecology, insects and architecture. 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. Registration is available through local schools and online at

The camp is sponsored by MSU Extended University. For more information, contact Martha Sellers at or 994-6683.
