USD Governor's Camp receives national attention
Every July for the past 22 years, gifted students from across South Dakota have converged upon the campus of The University of South Dakota in Vermillion for the South Dakota Governor's Camp.

The camp is now gaining national exposure in "SCOPE," the electronic newsletter for the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) Curriculum Studies Division.�

Tim Duggan, a professor in the School of Education, became director of the camp in 2004. Duggan's article on the camp was featured in the February 2006 issue of "SCOPE." The article highlighted the rewards a child can receive from attending this camp and showcased the program's new curriculum.


Recently the program has expanded its traditional five-day adventure into academic and artistic enrichment to include an extra day for students to explore their individual talents.

"I am pleased that the South Dakota Governor's Camp, which has a great tradition, is gaining attention with the National Association for Gifted Children," said Duggan.

"'SCOPE' is read by teachers and curriculum specialists working with gifted children across the country and around the world."
