The summer 2013 programs listed here are just a sample of the opportunities available to gifted students. Your child’s teacher or district G/T coordinator may be able to provide you with additional options. We found that many Kentucky universities and community colleges offer summer programs that would be of interest to high-ability young people. We suggest thinking about your child’s interests, and looking accordingly – for instance, many musical and theatre companies, museums, and nature preserves and parks offer summer camps. Thanks to everyone who sent information. Inclusion in this document does not mean a recommendation or endorsement by KAGE, but is offered as a service to parents and educators of gifted children.
We hope you will consider becoming a member of KAGE, and support efforts such as this compilation of opportunities.
