GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Curiosity Camp at Simon's Rock is a two-week exploration of college living and learning designed for students currently completing grades 9, 10, and 11. 
The camp will be held on Simon's Rock's campus from July 10- 23, 2022. Students can register for Curiosity Camp here.
Curiosity Camp at Simon's Rock is open to students interested in exploring their academic and creative interests in a college environment while they are currently completing grades 9, 10, or 11. Students will participate daily in Simon's Rock's signature Writing and Thinking Workshop along with a Seminar, and arts and science courses to experience academic offerings. The program's cohort of 30 students allows for small class sizes where students and professors can collaborate and engage in discourse in this academic summer camp.
Students will have the opportunity to take advantage of this summer camp in the Berkshires on Simon's Rock's 275-acre wooded campus of trails, Kilpatrick Athletic Center, nearby downtown Great Barrington, and planned excursions to nearby cultural attractions in the Berkshires.
"Our students were deeply engaged with the material presented and this immersive experience allowed them to continue classroom conversations in the dorms and dining hall- exactly what one might expect of a college experience. Teaching at Curiosity Camp was a lot of fun because the students were so engaged and creative," said visiting instructor at Curiosity Camp and Dean of Students at Bard High School Early College Cleveland Hannah Zipple. "The Simon's Rock campus is beautiful, woodsy, and the perfect setting for summer learning. Students can spend time together walking around campus, visiting the library, and using the athletic center. The small cohort helps our students to form a true sense of community, allowing for fun and connection during organized events and spontaneous activities. I'm looking forward to coming back this summer."
