    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 major support from corporations, foundations, community service groups, and individual contributions.

    Cultural, recreational and social activities round out the experience and include the annual OWjL Camp Review, the Historic Strand Theatre Movie Night, the OWjL dance, swimming, campus tours, crafts, and games. Attendees reside in Hayes Hall on the Ohio Wesleyan University campus, where they live in a family group atmosphere with an adult OWjL counselor.
