Location & Housing
The Davidson THINK Summer Institute is held on the University of Nevada, Reno campus, which is located in the heart of northern Nevada.
Long known as “the campus on a hill,” the University is a picturesque campus of green lawns, red-brick academic buildings and towering trees. Each participant shares a room and bathroom with another same-gender student on a private, locked floor in the University’s newest residence hall and all students are supervised by THINK staff members 24 hours a day. Participants eat all meals in the Downunder Café, which offers menus designed to meet the needs of all diners.
Each student is provided a computer for the duration of the program.

In addition to the full-immersion academic experience, THINKERs also take in a number of cultural events in the Reno-Lake Tahoe area.
Students also enjoy many on-campus activities, especially playing kickball in the Quad and spending relaxing weekend afternoons playing games with their friends.

"Since THINK is such an intimate camp, I got the chance to interact and become friends with all of the campers. Unlike other gifted camps I've attended, there are no cliques or separate groups: we THINKers really became family.”
