Cougar Quest is a residential academic summer camp for highly capable students on the Washington State University campus in Pullman, Washington (75 miles south of Spokane, Wa).
The camp is designed to meet the educational and social needs of young college-bound students entering grades 7 through 12 in fall 2010.
There are two weeks of camp, one to accommodate 7th through 9th graders and the second for 9th through 12th graders. Students entering 9th grade have the option of choosing one week, or attending both.
For one exciting week high achieving students attend three rigorous workshops of their choosing. Most workshops are taught by Washington State University professors and are full of hands-on activities that are meant to challenge and keep the interest of students.
