2018 Summer Program
SAGE Center offers deeply creative, enriching, nature-based excursions and outings as we soon pivot from the busy school year to beautifully rich and ripening summer experiences for our gifted children and adolescents.
The SAGE Summer Program maintains our philosophical framework on the cognitive, affective and regulatory strengths and needs of the gifted, but with enhanced experiences to capture the gifts of the summer season in the spectacular warmth and beauty of adventure -filled Colorado!
Our Educational Therapists customize each experience to support the unique and wondrous interests and passions of our gifted children and adolescents individually, as well as in small groupings.
