We’re so excited to be able to offer SCATS as an online experience this year. While camp will be in a virtual format, we’ve ensured the same unique learning environment that provides high-ability learners who have finished grades 6-8 the chance to explore new ideas, develop concepts, make friends, and share experiences.

We’re so excited to be able to offer VAMPY as an online experience this year. While camp will be in a virtual format, we’ve ensured the same rigorous academic environment that challenges high-ability learners that have finished grades 7-10. Classes will be taught by outstanding WKU faculty and area high school teachers who are thrilled to have equally outstanding students. We know how important community and traditions are to the VAMPY experience, and the online format will have evening activities to promote friendships between gifted learners while keeping beloved camp traditions alive.

Where Gifted Learners Discover Their Potential
Located on the Western Kentucky University campus in Bowling Green, Kentucky, The Center for Gifted Studies has been serving children who are gifted and talented, their educators, and their parents for more than thirty-five years. The Center provides exciting educational opportunities for gifted young people, rigorous professional development for teachers, and support for parents of gifted young people. Under the direction of Dr. Julia Roberts, The Center has become one of the preeminent advocates for gifted education in the United States.
The Center believes that when gifted young people meet their extraordinary potential, our communities, our state, our nation—even our world—become better places. That is why each school year, The Center renews its commitment to encouraging excellence by providing quality programming and resources for gifted students, their teachers, and their parents.
