MUW to host Summer Discovery camp at Franklin Academy for gifted students
COLUMBUS, Miss. – The Summer Discovery program at Mississippi University for Women will host the 19th anniversary of its five day summer camp program for gifted students June 25–July 1 at Franklin Academy.
Summer Discovery is an educational program that provides gifted students with opportunities to discover their own areas of interest and potential. They will also sharpen their critical thinking and creative skills. Not only will participants get to learn, they will get to interact with other gifted students from around the Columbus area.
Founded in 1992 by Dr. Suzanne Bean, retired professor of education at MUW, Summer Discovery allows students of MUW’s master of education in gifted studies program to service the community while gaining the experience of working with gifted students.
Costs for kindergarten participants are $130 and $150 for first through sixth grade participants. The program for kindergarten students will begin at 8 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. Grades first through sixth will attend from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Gifted students who have completed grades kindergarten through sixth are eligible for the program. For admission to the program, applicants in grades kindergarten through sixth must participate in their school’s gifted program or have a teacher recommendation to attend.
