Peaks and Potentials gives high-potential students the opportunity to come to the MSU campus and explore special topics of interest while working with experts in various subject areas.
Instructors are MSU faculty members, students and experienced professionals from the area. University students and professionals act as directors and counselors throughout the week.
All workshops emphasize personal instruction, small group interaction and a "hands-on" experiential approach. Academic, recreational and social activities offer students a chance to interact with their peers and sample campus life.
During the COVID-19 crisis, MSU Continuing, Professional and Lifelong Learning makes decisions based on policies and guidelines set by Montana State University, the Montana University System and the State of Montana.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Peaks and Potentials 2021 will be a little different this year. To do our best to make sure that all campers, staff and instructors stay safe, we will be making some changes to how the camp will be conducted and implementing some new protocols. We will only be offering the commuter option for Peaks and Potentials 2021.
Following CDC guidelines, campers will be required to wear masks at all times unless actively eating or drinking. We ask that campers please bring their own masks with them. Staff and instructors will also be required to wear masks. Temperature and symptom checks will be taken each morning when participants arrive on campus. If a temperature is high or symptoms are felt, the participant will be asked to go home. When possible, workshop activities, meals and free time activities will be held outside.
Campers will be asked to sanitize hands on a regular basis. Hand sanitizer will be provided to each participant and available to all instructors for use throughout the day. Cleaning supplies (antibacterial wipes, paper towels, disinfectant spray, etc.) will also be provided to instructors as needed.
Everyone is asked to wear a mask during registration, daily drop-off and pick-up. If you or your child are experiencing any possible COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home and call the camp director to let us know that your camper won’t be attending camp.
Documentation of Camp Rules and Expectations, including COVID-19 protocols, will be included with the confirmation letter.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Peaks and Potentials will not be able to offer a resident plan option in 2021.
$ 499 - Includes five lunches, workshop tuition, all group activities and a t-shirt.
This year, Peaks will have four groups of three classes each. Each group will have a maximum of 10 students each. Each group will have their own staff member to escort them to workshops and spend lunch and free time with them. These students will stay together throughout the day, attending workshops, eating lunch and spending free time together. We will have little to no intermingling of groups with each other.
Participants will eat lunch on campus. Five lunches are included in the cost of the camp.
Peaks and Potentials 2021 schedule is available. All workshops and activities begin Monday, June 21, 2021.
We will not be having orientation on Sunday evening. Registration will be in the SUB (exact location TBD). At registration, campers will find the table for their group to check in.
