Summer Institute for the Gifted accepting applications for summer 2012

Seems like it’s never too early to start thinking about summer opportunities. One of the first programs to release its summer 2012 schedule and application is the Summer Institute for the Gifted, which will offer both day camp and residential options at Emory University. Both camps are scheduled for June 24 to July 14, 2012.

The day camp is open to kids ages 4-12; the residential camp is open to ages 9-17. The residential camp has a commuter option if you prefer for your child to live at home. It saves you a little money but the word is, it also keeps your child from having the complete social experience they get from living on campus with their peers.

SIG is a selective program that requires “evidence of giftedness” for admission.

My son attended SIG’s day program at Emory last summer and absolutely loved it. The faculty and the kids were just great.

If you have an older child who is starting to explore college options, a SIG residential camp could also be an opportunity for an extended visit to a campus they’re considering. SIG locations for 2012 include Amherst, Dartmouth, Princeton, UCLA, Berkeley, Vassar and Yale.
