Summer Camp

The Greenwood Genetic Center’s Junior Genetics Scholars Camp provides a unique opportunity for high school students to gain first-hand exposure to the field of genetics straight from the experts. The week includes learning about the latest technologies, engaging in hands-on lab activities, touring the Center, and exploring careers in the field of genetics.

Those who have registered will be contacted by GGC soon regarding the altered schedule and safety measures in place for our summer camp.

If you have registered and are now unable to attend or uncomfortable with having your student attend, a full refund will be isssued.
