Event Description

University of South Dakota

37th Annual South Dakota Governor's Camp


The University of South Dakota School of Education offers a week-long summer program for gifted students entering grades 6-9 in the fall of 2020 who want to expand their strengths and make lifelong friends. We believe each child is gifted in a unique way, and we welcome anyone who is eager to challenge themselves and build upon their talents.

The South Dakota Governor’s Camp is focused on STEAM education.  Students who successfully complete sessions in science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics will be eligible to receive a STEAM medal and will be recognized at the closing ceremony.

In addition to our STEAM class offerings, we have many sessions that will match your unique interests and talents.  You'll get a taste of college life, eating with friends in the dining hall and living in USD dorms. You'll hear from inspiring speakers, and you will engage in a variety of team building and recreational activities.  

You'll go beyond the classroom and take hands-on courses in the subjects that interest you. Previous classes have included:

  • Robotics
  • Intro to Guitar
  • Bird Banding
  • Veterinary Dissection
  • Visual Art
  • Intro to Acting
  • Yoga
  • And many more!

Whether you're an aspiring scientist, a talented musician or still unsure, the South Dakota Governor’s Camp will help you discover and develop your passion.
