Young Student Summer Program (YSSP)

Provided by
Wisconsin Center for Academically Talented Youth

Young Students Summer Program classes are fast-paced and cover a great amount of material. Our philosophy is that students completing grades 4-6 need to learn about the many different avenues open to their curious minds. Each class is small and designed to enrich learning and introduce new disciplines, helping students expand their knowledge about the world and discover how much there truly is to learn. As students adjust to the summer camp atmosphere, they gain personal independence and connect with other bright students on a deeper level. 

*Early Academic Camp Experience for Elementary Students
* Week long focus on single subject 
* Exposure to new disciplines 
* Structured and safe residential atmosphere
