High School Camp
2023 Dates are June 19-22
This camp is designed to foster Governor’s Cup–and classroom–success. It will feature instruction in Quick Recall, Written Assessment and Future Problem Solving. Campers arrive on Monday morning and depart Thursday afternoon.
Staff includes the top academic team coaches in Kentucky. A complete staff roster will be posted when finalized.
Course offerings may change with demand. The registration form will always be the most up-to-date. Campers may choose from one of these three academic tracks:
- Track 1 – three subject area courses
- Track 2 - FPS Only
Lodging is dormitory style, two per room, with private bathrooms in each room. A day camper option is also available when you register.
The fee is $400 per camper if you register before May 22 and $435 after that date. KAAC must receive full payment by June 2. Failure to meet this guideline will result in the forfeiture of your camp reservation. Reservations are considered complete when full payment and the liability form are received.
A limited number of scholarships are available through the KAAC Outreach program.
