About 300 Beaufort County fourth through ninth-graders exercised their creative genes at a unique summer camp this week.
Students participated in all kinds of creative activities including costume makeup, basket weaving, CSI forensics basics and video game design.
The Sea Island School for Arts and Academics hosted the two-week long program as a way to give more opportunities to gifted and talented students beyond a normal classroom.
"It's been really fun meeting new people and the teachers are really fun," said Alexia Smith, a summer camp participant.
"It helps by giving you other skills that you may not necessarily learn in school," said Alex Stephens, a summer camp participant.
This is the 25th year of the summer camp.
