Summer camp for gifted students returns to Wesleyan

BUCKHANNON — The Wesleyan Summer Gifted Program, for children in the fifth through 12th grades, will be held June 15-18 on the West Virginia Wesleyan College campus.

The two-week, overnight program offers advanced classes in physics, higher math, creative writing, C++ programming, history and environmental science, a new offering this year. These classes are all taught by experienced college professors. The students will room with age-mates in the dormitory, eat college food, play together and attend classes on campus. They will be supervised by college-age counselors serving as guides and mentors.

Besides academics, the camp offers extensive recreational facilities — a swimming pool, basketball and tennis courts, baseball and soccer fields, a walking trail, a full library, music practice rooms and a new arts center. Activities include movies, guest speakers, group activities, two short trips off campus, and a talent show at the end of camp.

Applications will be accepted up until check-in on June 15. Parents and students can enroll at
