Please Note: Great Books Summer Program Program is actively building Great Books Online for the summer in the event that restrictions due to COVID-19 persist. While we expect to be open in all locations and resume camp as usual, we will be ready to offer students options if needed. Contact us with questions.
For over 19 years, GBSP has gathered exceptional middle and high school students from across the world to read, discuss and debate selections from the greatest works of literature.
Students experience college-level seminars, engage in lively discussion, and enjoy summer fun with other literary-minded students. We offer summer camps at the University of Oxford, Amherst College, Stanford University, Northwestern University, and Beijing. New for 2020: University of Edinburgh!
Great Books students say it best! Watch and listen to Great Books students explain what makes the program so special. See more videos.
