Talented Development Institute


TDI is a summer camp/academic program, with overnight and commuter options, for advanced and gifted students who are entering grades 4-9. The 2019 Institute will be held for two weeks: June 23-29 and June 30-July 6. Participants may be involved for one or both weeks. We have a great mix of classes this year, with something for a variety of types of learners and thinkers!  This year's classes- which include Rube Goldberg Machines, Art Extravaganza, History Comes Alive, Genetics, Be Your Own Good Friend, Character Design, and Fuzzbeed!- nurture students' creativity and their love of learning. Campers have a blast learning alongside other smart kids on a small college campus (Northern Vermont University, formerly Johnson State College) nestled in the beautiful Green Mountains. Partial scholarships are available.  Go to
