» Gene Cloning is a biology laboratory-intensive boot camp.

It mixes historical and political contexts of activism with exposure to real world careers in social justice and the non-profit sector.

» Blacksmithing, Bladesmithing, and Beyond introduces students to the world of metalworking with an emphasis on hot forging, casting, and manipulation. Students learn from historical and contemporary examples of this ancient art, and create new works.

» Hampshire College Summer Studies in Mathematics, now in its 44th year, is an intensive six-week encounter with college-level mathematics for talented and highly motivated high school students.
