Gifted Camp Students

Unforgettable learning experiences for gifted youth.

The School of Education offers two week-long summer programs for gifted middle and high school students who want to expand their strengths and make lifelong friends. We believe each child is gifted in a unique way and we welcome anyone who is recommended by a school official.

While at camp, you'll choose hands-on classes that match your interests, whether you like watercolor painting, meteorology, robotics or playing guitar. You'll get a taste of college life, eating with friends in the dining hall and living in USD dorms. You'll hear from inspiring guest speakers and participate in a talent show, a social dance and a fancy dinner in the Muenster University Center ballroom.

Whether you're an aspiring scientist, a talented musician or still unsure, the South Dakota Governor's Camp and the Ambassadors of Excellence program will help you discover and develop your passion.
