Welcome to Sprout Gifted Services!
What is Sprout Summer Camp?
Sprout Summer Camp is a three-hour program focusing on socioemotional growth and cognitive development of the gifted child.
By providing ample opportunities and enriching projects based on the gifted student’s curiosities, you will soon see that your gifted child has found a group of peers that she/he can feel comfortable with and share their vast talents. Because of our passion for gifted education, we look at many fields of learning from art, growth mindset, science, drama, writing, math, and social studies. The possible areas that we study are endless. We provide opportunities for individual work and collaboration with peers. We give Sprout participants chances to share their work and even teach about topics that interest them.
Each day of camp will focus on inspiring, exploratory projects that are open-ended and involve critical thinking, growth mindset, collaboration, and the creative process. Projects are inspired by the student’s interests and curiosities about how things work and evolve.

WHO ARE WE?
Sprout Gifted Services strives to help create a community for gifted youth and their families.
Sprout Gifted offers an after-school and summer program for gifted children. Our program is designed to help gifted children discover their talents and become comfortable using them. We hope to enrich the lives of gifted youth through socialization with other like-minded children. In addition to the social aspect, there are planned creative, open-ended, challenging, and unique activities, to stimulate and engage the gifted child’s mind in many diverse disciplines.
Through these programs, we become a support system for the families of gifted children. We offer resources to aid in the understanding of gifted minds and we are dedicated to each child’s educational goals both in Sprout and in the classroom.
By providing infinite opportunities and enriching projects based on the gifted student’s curiosities, you will soon see that your gifted child has found a group of peers that she/he can feel comfortable with and share their vast talents. The Sprout teachers are passionate about gifted education so, week to week, we look at many fields of learning from art, growth mindset, science, drama, writing, math, and social studies. The possible areas that we study are endless. We provide opportunities for individual work and collaboration with their peers. We give the Sprout students chances to share their work and even teach about topics that interest them.
With our small class sizes, our goal is to provide the gifted child with the freedom to explore their interests and open themselves up to a challenge in a risk-free environment. Take a look at our blog to see what the Sprout kiddos have been up to!
We encourage you to come see our program in action! When a Sprout student walks through our doors, they know they have found a place where they belong. Trial classes are encouraged. We want your student to get the most out of our program and feel comfortable when they are with us.
We work with families to advocate for quality programming in their schools, connect them with other families of gifted children, and seek to understand how to maintain a sense of security and balance the challenges both at home and school.
We are excited to be offering classes for Gifted children ages 4 and 5 years old. If you are interested in forming an EC gifted group on Mondays from 1:00-2:30 or Fridays from 3:00-4:30, please fill out the admissions form by clicking HERE.
