It’s June, and time to look for activities that will keep your bright children happily engaged though the summer months. I can suggest three that you may want to investigate, although of course you should always look into local offerings.
Choice School in Richmond is well known for its programs for children described as gifted. They are offering two sessions in the summer: July 10 -14 and July 17 – 21. There are a number of intriguing offerings, including “Create Your Own Country” and “How Many Ways Can You Solve a Problem?” For more information download the brochure, which includes all the information and a registration form:
Odyssey of the Mind
This program is offered year-round by the BC branch of the Creative Problem Solving Society. There are four week-long camps offered for “totally creative kids” through July and into August at various sites around the lower mainland. To find out more and register, visit the website for:
Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth
The CTY website explains: ” The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth identifies and develops the talents of the most advanced K-12 learners worldwide. As part of Johns Hopkins, CTY contributes to the university’s mission by preparing and nurturing the bright young people who will go on to make significant contributions to our world.” CTY offers programs year-round, but there are admission tests which are pre-requisites.
