TDI is a summer camp/academic program, with overnight and commuter options, for advanced and gifted students who are entering grades 4-9. The 2017 Institute will be held for two weeks: June 18-24 and June 25-July 1. Participants may be involved for one or both weeks. This year's classes, which vary from Music Video Production to 3-D Computer Modeling to Outdoor Adventure to Dragonology to Improvisation, nurture students' creativity and their love of learning. Campers have a blast learning alongside other smart kids on a small college campus (Johnson State College) nestled in the beautiful Green Mountains. Partial scholarships are available.
