Since their origins in the early 1980’s, academic summer programs for gifted teenagers have proliferated across the United States, and indeed around the world. Fueled by an increasingly competitive college admissions process, easy access to standardized qualifying tests, and parental anxiety over children’s future career prospects, these programs capitalize as well on teens’ longstanding desires to escape from adult supervision and suburban boredom. The Collected Rules of Gifted Camp explores the way these new trends collide with and transform the traditional American pastime of summer camp.

Annie, Leila, and Kevin, age 15, have been counting the days until they arrive at their summer destination, a highly selective academic program for gifted teens. Dodging flying peppermints, deformed Noxema jars, kidnappers, claw-knives, aggressive squirrels, the ever-present threat of swine flu, not to mention their counselor, Rose, the campers doggedly pursue their respective Camp Goals – until the unexpected happens, at the Saturday night costume dance.

  • After checking out the link, the site seems legit, not the usual spam we get. It's blatant advertising, but it's relevant... and funnily, every preshow song in the script is a TiP Song. That's hilarious. Check it out, if you're a tipster, you actually may be interested. --Sam Park 20:26, 1 May 2012 (EDT)
