Summer Programs for the Gifted

Summer vacation will soon be here. If you plan on enrolling your child in activities this summer, decisions need to be made very soon. Sometimes the choices seem overwhelming and other times it is difficult to find any program that seems appropriate. Here is some help.

First of all, you and your child need to sit down and decide why you are interested in a summer program. Once that is decided, you need to figure out how to go about choosing one. You will find help in the article Time to Start Thinking About Summer! which is written by both a camp director and a parent of gifted children. The article will help you think about lots of questions to ask of yourself, your young person, and the camp director. It also provides a framework for narrowing your choices.

There are two websites that will help you locate suitable programs—both national and international.
