Camp Summit for the gifted, talented, creative is a week long overnight summer camp designed specifically for gifted students ages 9 through 15. Created especially for developing the "inner and outer nature" of gifted youth, Camp Summit offers stimulating and challenging activities combined with a staff uniquely qualified to nuture such a community located in beautiful, pictureseque settings. Camp Summit opened its first camp in June, 2010 in the Marin Headlands, in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area just north of the Golden Gate Bridge on the California coast. At Camp Summit West, campers enjoy engaging activities such as LARP (Live Action Role Play), visual and creative arts, Rube Goldberg Machines, outdoor ecology studies, strategy games, hands-on and self exploring design projects and workshops, along with more typical camp activities such as hiking, beach and mountain adventures, storytelling, sing-along by the campfire, capture the flag and other outdoor/indoor games. Now, as the Camp Summit moves into its eighth year of operation, we are thrilled to announce the grand opening of our new location August 20-26, 2017 to serve the needs of gifted children on the eastern seaboard - Camp Summit East located on at the North Bay Adventure in Maryland will feature, alongside the usual activities, new adventures such as zip lining, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, astronomy, ropes courses, various STEM activities (floating eco lab, Bivalves, Rube Goldberg) and much more. So what makes Camp Summit so unique and the annual highlight for our campers? Beyond a knowledgeable and experienced staff, breathtaking settings, and engaging activities, it is those 'forever' relationships that campers build with each other that make Camp Summit unlike any other summer camp your children have tried.
