Summer 2020 Update - Satori 37 cancellation due to COVID-19
Greetings to our incredible Satori participants.
We hope that the COVID-19 stay at home order has offered you the opportunity to relax with a good book and have a bit of quality facetime with your Satori pals. To be sure, Sara, Jeni, and I worked diligently to develop a great Satori 37, but alas, the extenuating circumstances created by this corona virus has forced some difficult decisions. As a result, EWU has made the difficult decision to cancel ALL summer camps for summer 2020, including Satori and Satori Junior.
If you have already registered, any tuition and/or other funds will be refunded.
We are feeling great disappointment over these cancellations, yet we can't wait until Satori reconvenes in the summer of 2021. Until then, please stay healthy and keep in touch with your fellow Satorians.
Mike, Sara, and Jeni
Welcome to Satori Camp!
Countdown to Satori 2020:
Satori Summer Camp is the brainchild of Dr. Bruce Mitchell and Mike Cantlon and grew out of their mutual concern over the lack of opportunities for gifted youth to socialize in a non-competitive atmosphere. Founded in 1983, Satori is now entering its 37th year.
The camp is based on a philosophy of non-competition; unlike many other enrichment programs for gifted youth, campers are not graded for their participation, nor do they receive advanced placement credit. What they do get is an opportunity to interact with intellectual peers and engage in all sorts of stimulating activities.
During camp, participants choose three classes from amongst the course offerings, taking these each day during their week at camp. The camp’s course offerings feature a wide variety of classes that introduce campers to areas of inquiry that they may not have been previously exposed to including multimedia design, journalism, brain science, sculpture, archaeology, acting, literary criticism, and many more. Campers have the option to live on Eastern Washington University’s campus for the duration of camp and enjoy the various amenities available on a typical university campus, including the academic facilities and recreational facilities.
