SOAR Camp has dates for summer 2023. Mark your calendars! Middle school will be a full week for 6-8th graders from July 23-28th, 2023. The elementary will be a half week camp for 3-5th grade from July 30- August 2nd, 2023. Camp registrations are based on the camper’s current grade.
SOAR Camp is looking for help. All administrative, organizational and instruction time is donated by volunteers who understand and enjoy working with gifted youth. We need instructors, emotional support folks, financial support and people to get the word out. We welcome your help and we welcome suggestions if you know of others that we should contact. Please reach out with your thoughts.
And finally, SOAR Camper openings fill quickly so we wanted to give you an opportunity to act now if you choose. Registration for camp this year will open in early January! That’s earlier than ever. The campers will need a letter of recommendation from a teacher to go along with their registration form. The letter is usually the part that slows the process down a bit as teachers are so busy these days. It would be helpful to let them know now that you will need a letter of support in early January.
The early bird registration window is closing in on us. If you are interested in learning more about how to support your gifted children or find networking with other parents here in Wisconsin… this one’s for you!

The middle school week of camp was filled with lots of new and exciting things. Elementary campers can expect the same kind of week! We are ready and waiting for your arrival! See you soon!

Today is the day! We are ready and waiting for you with wonderful opportunities and exciting adventures! See you soon!
Elementary Campers… your turn is coming!
We have found ourselves in a new position we have not been in before in the history of our camp. Due to unexpected circumstances, we have a few available openings that were created this week. If you know of anyone that might consider a last minute registration for camp, please send our information along to them. We have a place for both a boy and girl in the elementary camp as well as the middle level camp. We would sure love to fill these spots if at all possible. We will fill these places in the order in which the paperwork is completed. Thanks for your help in getting the word out!
We are into the final days of paperwork for SOAR Camp. Paperwork and last payments are due by Friday, July 1, 2022. The camp counselors have had their training in “all things gifted kids” (well, at least they got lots of information!) and are ready to meet our campers. We are looking forward to SOAR Camp in a few short weeks!
We still have a couple of spots available to elementary age campers 3-5th grade.
The rest of the camp details and information about the final payment will be emailed out within the next two weeks. Final payments and health forms will be due no later than the end of June.
As always, feel free to reach out with questions!
I am able to open another elementary girls’ cabin! That means that the female campers on the waiting list will all get in and I still have a couple of openings left then for 3-5th grade girls. In addition, I have a couple of openings for 3-5th grade boys and 6-8th grade girls. Unfortunately, the 6-8th grade boys have a waiting list yet, but you are still welcome to register for camp. If openings occur, campers will be added in the order that their registrations were received.
We no longer have openings for elementary girls and middle school boys. Waiting lists have been started for both of those groups. Please feel free to register anyway, as some folks have plans change or we may be able to open other cabins. In the event of additional openings, we will add campers off of the waiting list in the order that we receive their registrations. We have a couple of places left for elementary boys and middle school girls at this point. Do not feel like you have to wait for a letter of recommendation in order to register for camp. That can be sent after registration. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out with them.
We are quickly approaching capacity for both the elementary and middle school level camps, for both boys and girls. If you are interested in having your child attend camp now is the time to register and send in your deposit. (We have Venmo!) We will start our wait list for campers as soon as each group is filled. We are thrilled about the instructors we have for this summer! Stay tuned…
