Science Camps For High School Students

Stephanie Said:

Do you know of any prestigious science camps,particularly for some type of astronomy/cosmology/astrophysics?

We Answered:

NASA has summer programs for high school students, (NASA summer school) and NASA Huntsville has space camp (although that's more for younger kids, I think). Smith College has summer science programs for high school girls, but it's not just astronomy, it also includes things like genetics and engineering.
