Summer Enrichment Camps

MSMS has implemented additional guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our students and employees on campus during this unprecedented time. Among these guidelines, all individuals are required to wear masks, social distance, and regularly sanitize their hands and work stations. We will continue to remain diligent in these efforts and will require all campers to do the same if they choose to stay with us for the residential camp experience.

Residential Summer Enrichment Camp

In addition to directly serving the state’s brightest upper classmen throughout the school year, MSMS proudly hosts two camps every summer designed to challenge gifted middle school and early high school students. These Summer Enrichment Camps provide an opportunity for academic inquiry and exploration through a variety of specialized STEM+ mini-courses. For many students, this is their first exposure to rigorous and innovative science and mathematics electives, which, in turn, ignites a passion for inquiry and an enthusiasm for learning. Summer camp participants live and learn together in a residential setting. Every evening, students interact with small groups to compete in team activities to enhance communication, problem solving, and critical thinking skills.

Tuition for each camp is $700 and covers all fees and expenses, including meals. Financial assistance is available for qualified campers.

In order to attend MSMS Summer Enrichment Camp, you must complete the camp application. If you are interested in receiving financial assistance, you must complete an additional request.
