POWER LOGOThe ECU/PCS AIG camp is an annual summer camp for Pitt County AIG students.  This camp began in 2005 and has grown each year. We will host 120 gifted students this summer. Along with PCS master teachers, ECU faculty and students will offer a week of rigorous enrichment for your child.

This summer's curriculum theme is POWER. Whether the students are learning about wind power, media's impact on body image, poetry, solar energy, creating documentaries or other exciting topics they will investigate numerous aspects of odyssey in our world.
