Applications are open for Summit School L.A.M.P. Camp: Gifted Children Camp Open to Public

A week-long, deep dive into literature, art, music, and philosophy for gifted children

Why Literature, Art, Music, and Philosophy (L.A.M.P.)? Gifted children think big thoughts. They thrive when making connections across disciplines. They search to understand how ideas and concepts are related to each other. L.A.M.P. draws together gifted students for one amazing week of reading great texts, asking big questions, thinking deeply, and connecting with ideas and each other. Through fables, poetry, and short stories, students will learn how to critically analyze text. Through writing, art, and music, students will reimagine and create their own pieces from their points of view. Teachers will be using a research-based curriculum, adapted from a variety of sources including the Center for Gifted Education at the College of William & Mary. More information and application instructions are found HERE.
