OWjL is a residential summer camp program of challenge and enrichment for central Ohio’s gifted and talented middle school students currently (at time of application) in grades 6-8. Its name derives from its founders, Ohio Wesleyan University and the Junior League of Columbus. The program receives support from corporations, foundations, community service groups, and individual contributions.

Campers attending OWjL select four courses from an academic program that includes mathematics, logic, computing, science, humanities and creative development. Cultural, recreational and social activities round out the experience and include the annual OWjL dance, swimming, campus tours, crafts, and games.

Campers reside in air-conditioned Stuyvesant Hall on the Ohio Wesleyan University campus, where they live in a family group atmosphere with an adult OWjL counselor.

Approximately 540 campers are selected to attend the OWjL program, representing more than 120 middle schools throughout central Ohio, including Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, Knox, Licking, Madison, Marion, Morrow, Pickaway and Union counties.

OWjL Mission Statement

The OWjL program is committed to bringing together gifted middle school students from economically and culturally diverse backgrounds throughout Central Ohio for a one week residential summer camp on the campus of Ohio Wesleyan University. The purpose of the program is to allow students to explore a wide variety of experiential classes in a college-like setting and to learn from one another that their similarities outweigh their differences.
