  6. 6. Ideas for a Sensational Summer Students are making the most of their summer break with a range of interesting new activities and summer programs. by Jim Paterson aylor came home buzzing about her three-week stay at Cow House Studios, a center for artists on a beautiful farm in Wexford, Ireland. Her parents were pleased that in high school she had an opportunity to explore art through the unique summer program, tour various spots in Ireland, and meet like-minded young people on the working farm. But a few weeks later, her parents saw a bigger payoff. When Taylor and her family were making one of their regular visits to a small seaside town in New England, Taylor began photographing and interviewing the residents, mimicking the work of an advanced student with whom she had worked. “These are people she had no doubt encountered countless times over the years, but now she decided to engage them in a way she never had before,” says Frank Abruzzese, Cow House co-director. “When I heard this I thought: ’that’s it.’ That’s what I had hoped we could give to our students. If we can foster a deep curiosity for the world, I think weve done our students a great service. Taylor can apply it to anything.” Taylor’s experience is being matched throughout this country and abroad in summer programs that offer a diverse mix of experiences. “I think there is a shift from the days that students went to the Adiron- Students with US dacks or just spent time at a college,” says Sara Crowther Craig, director Performing Arts of non-degree programs at Smith College. “Now there is so much more.” Camps lighting up the stage at the UCLA For instance, Smith has broadened its summer offerings for high Musical Theater school students to include a well-regarded four-week Summer Science Conservatory Camp. and Engineering Program and an in-depth sustainability program.
