My Spectrum School's Gifted and Talented Summer Program is designed to provide children the opportunity to focus and excel in at least one domain of interest. Your children’s developmental abilities will be enhanced through an accelerated, project-based curriculum that is differentiated and adapted to meet their individualized skill set. Our methodology allows them to learn subject matter in a variety of ways and make connections, thereby multiplying their chances of successfully retaining and understanding the information.
Each week, children will discover new and exciting topics from each domain, and engage and persist in thematic projects amplifying their abilities and interests. These projects are designed to stimulate creativity, encourage collaboration, and challenge critical thinking skills to generate real solutions to practical problems in the following subject areas:
Social and cultural studies, geography, community, linguistics, poetry, fiction and nonfiction reading, creative writing, public speaking , studio art, art history, music theory and practice, kinesthetics, yoga, botany, zoology, geology, entomology, matter, astronomy, anatomy, environments, logic, patterns in nature, geometry, architecture, computer programming, and engineering.
Children who attend full day and extended day sessions will develop three projects per day, with additional opportunities to expand their unique areas of interests. All children will participate in recreational activities as part of the learning process.
Gifted children love discovering our captivating outdoor nature classroom, and participate in many exciting activities. Painting and drawing on canvased easels, planting flowers, observing and recording butterfly behavior, exercising in the fresh air, identifying patterns in nature, utilizing sensory tables, building electrical circuit-systems, pretend-play and creating musical instruments are only some of the wonderful activities offered to our gifted children.
Weekly sessions provide the flexibility to accommodate your busy schedule.
Children are welcome to attend 2, 3, 4, or 5 days, Monday to Friday during any of the weeks listed below.
Free snacks are provided to children in all sessions, but they must bring lunch for full and extended day gifted camp sessions.
