Camp Launch at William & Mary
July 16-29, 2023
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 residential program with courses in STEM, Writing, and Personal Development.
Camp Launch 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
