Born out of a desire to help gifted students from low socioeconomic levels, Camp Launch provides eligible students in grades 7-10 with unique academic and enrichment opportunities. Campers are recruited from school districts throughout Virginia to participate in this two-week program with courses in STEM, Writing, and Personal Development.
Virtual Camp Launch 2021 will be held July 19 - 30!
If you would like more information regarding application requirements or would like to apply please contact our office at [[camplaunch]]. Please visit our About section for more information and eligibility requirements.
Camp Launch has four goals:
- to deliver advanced instruction in academic content, such as STEM, writing, academic self-efficacy, and personal development;
- to provide enrichment opportunities in a wide variety of content areas;
- to encourage the development of peer support networks; and
- to develop in campers a future orientation that includes a college education, along with preparation that will help them take advantage of enabling opportunities to achieve that goal.
