SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Summer camps for gifted children hosted by Drury University began July 5 and will last until July 16.

The day camps are organized by Drury’s Center for Gifted Education partnered with Springfield Public Schools.

“The older kids typically have an on-campus residential experience, but because of COVID we are waiting until next summer to offer that piece,” said Mary Potthoff, the director of Center for Gifted Education.

Children from pre-K to 11th grade have camp sessions available to them. This event has been going on for over 35 years.

Camp staff is fully vaccinated and will be required to wear masks; students are encouraged to wear a mask.
