What's the best way for your child to spend an enjoyable and satisfying summer? Just ask them. At the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC), we find that children are able to best develop their potential in an environment that offers experiences suited to individual needs. Thatís why itís worth searching for a proper fit. Itís obvious that not all children thrive under the same circumstances. Well-matched and appropriate educational programs give children opportunities to develop their talent potential, and the summer months can provide powerful learning options that extend well beyond regular classroom fare.

Here are some ideas to help narrow choices and make camp shopping much more productive.
