New AICL summer camps for grades 6-12

February 23, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

AICL-LogoThe Appalachian Institute for Creative Learning invites rising middle- and high-school students to its residential summer camps at Mars Hill University, near Asheville, N.C.

AICL celebrates imagination and creativity. My kids have attended this camp, and I taught there one summer. The class content is highly engaging for creative kids, but just as important is AICL’s nurturing, accepting environment for kids who think differently, have unusual interests, and don’t like to be forced into a mold of conformity.

Spaces are available in two of AICL’s programs:

  • Week 0, for rising 9th through 12th graders. This is an intense academic program — still fun, but more demanding than AICL’s traditional enrichment camps.
  • Week T -1, for rising 6th through 8th graders, promises hands-on labs, Socratic discussions, and intensive art classes.

In addition to class time during the day, both camps offer social and recreational time in the afternoons and evenings.
