Seeking feedback on Duke TIP summer programs

February 25, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

Someone wrote to me and asked what I knew about the Duke TIP summer programs. She is trying to select a location (Davidson, Trinity, or Wake Forest) for her child.

I have no personal experience with these programs, so I’m putting this one out to you, readers. If you have a child who has participated in a Duke TIP summer program, would you take a minute to comment about where they attended and how it was?

    I have a nephew who attended a 3 week session at Duke in the TIP program. He loved it and felt he had found his “tribe” He’s 26 now so it’s been a while ago but I remember he came back feeling confident and energized.

    Our daughter went to Duke TIP at Davidson last year. She liked the camp and the counselors. She met several kids and still communicates with a few of them. Our daughter took a math class that she said was challenging and fun but became a little boring after the 2nd week. She did get accepted this year to Georgia Tech with Duke but we are going to try a different camp this year. SIG which offers 4 courses and that seems to fit her needs better. I do hope they are all challenging courses but ultimately either camp would be fine. The most important for us is for her to be around kids who think like she does. Which Duke fit that for us for sure. We live in a small town in SE Missouri with little resources for gifted kids so we have to find something outside our area in the summer. Hope that helps
