Fifty-six exceptional high school students from across the country are clewing up a month-long enrichment camp called SHAD.
The camp selects high achieving young people from across the country and displaces them from their community for an extended learning experience aimed at empowering tomorrow’s leaders.

Camps are held at a number of universities nationwide and today marks the final day full day of activities for this year’s group of bright-eyed participants.
Seventeen-year-old Katie Brown of Brampton, Ontario says she has always been attracted to the sciences and she admits she has learned a lot about being an entrepreneur. However, Brown says she’s most grateful for the increased level of confidence and expanded perspective she has gained over the past several weeks.
Brown says she is going to keep trying new things and the camp has shown her that she is curious about engineering and business as well. She says she is eager to stay engaged and learn more.
Students participating in the camp return home tomorrow.
