Middle Grades Camp

2023 Dates are June 26-29
Berea College

This camp is designed to foster Governor’s Cup–and classroom–success. It will feature instruction in five Subject Areas and in Future Problem Solving. Campers arrive on Monday morning and depart Thursday afternoon.


Staff includes the top academic team coaches in Kentucky.


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 community bathrooms. A day camper option is also available when you register.


Registration is $400 prior to May 22 and $435 after that date.

KAAC must receive full payment by June 2 unless invoicing arrangements have been made. Those unpaid at that time will forfeit their reservation. Reservations are considered complete when full payment and the liability form are received.


A limited number of camp scholarships are available as part of the KAAC Outreach program. This year's application has closed.
