About Summer Day & Residential Camps

Summer Academic Day and Residential Camps at CTD offer single and multi-week programs.

Each day involves several different activities, and program curricula move at a rapid pace.

All staff should be committed to the goals of the program; attuned to the academic, social, and emotional needs of gifted learners; and understanding of the particular challenges of working with students in an academically rigorous and residential environment.

Staff should possess passion, energy, creativity, organizational skills, flexibility, teamwork, and the ability to troubleshoot, problem solve, and manage stress.

Following the program, instructional staff have responsibilities for student evaluation and program documentation.
