Camp Summit for the gifted, talented, creative is a multinight sleepover summer camp designed specifically for gifted students ages 9 through 14. 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, we are also pleased to offer Camp Summit East, located at the NorthBay Adventure in Maryland. This camp features the usual activies, plus 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.
