All workshops offered are fast-paced and rigorous, and involve challenging activities pitched at individual abilities rather than chronological age. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to step up to a challenge, to meet other children of like minds and to establish new friendships. The workshops are presented by leaders with a keen interest in gifted education—experts in their field—who design programs to stimulate the interests, abilities and curiosities of gifted children.

Workshops run between 10 am and 3 pm.

Registration is from 9 am each day.

Parents do not attend the workshops with the children as they are fully supervised.

Children bring their lunch with them and a hat and water bottle.

Registration costs:

Non-members - per child per day  $77 each
