Gifted Camp Students

Unforgettable learning experiences for gifted youth.

The School of Education offers a week-long summer program for gifted students entering grades 7-9 in the fall of 2018 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 you will engage in a variety of team building activities.  

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