    Does anyone have any experience with SIG summer camps for teens, specifically at Yale University? My sonís CTY camp was unexpectedly canceled at the last minute and I am scrambling to get him into a camp. SIG had been kind enough to take CTY students and accept the CTY paperwork and application. They donít have a lot of openings or options at this point. But we are seriously considering it for my son. Unfortunately, we need to make up our minds very quickly and so I am reaching out here to see if anyone has any advice or experiences with the SIG camps. For reasons I donít really want to go into right now, he really needs some thing like the CTY camp for psychological and social reasons.

    I'm sorry we don't have any direct experience with SIG, so I can't comment on that...but I do feel for you and your DC. I hope you are able to find something that gives him what he needs this summer.
