Gifted children from across the state and the country can get a taste of what real college life is like this summer on the campus of West Virginia Wesleyan College.
The Wesleyan Summer Gifted Program, now in its 30th year, offers advanced classes in astronomy, physics, higher math, literature, creative writing, computer programming and history -- all taught by seasoned college professors. Students in grades 5 through 12 can live in the dormitory for a two-week period, eat and attend classes on campus, and are supervised by college-age counselors who serve as guides and mentors.
The camp also emphasizes fun and recreation, offering extensive facilities, movies, guest speakers, group activities, opportunities for athletic pursuits and a talent show at the end of camp.
Camp dates are June 16-29. Applications will be accepted up until the first day of camp. Pre-registration is recommended and a $200 deposit is required.
