The Central Honors Institute (CHI) is a five-day residential academic camp for middle school students who have completed the 6th or 7th grade and who have demonstrated academic accomplishments, leadership and maturity among their peers. Students must complete an application, and submit a recommendation from a recent teacher and a nomination from a counselor or school official to be eligible to attend.
CHI campers attend academic classes during the day, socialize with peers int he evenings and fully experience life on a college campus, complete with dorm food and residence halls. Central Community College-Columbus has been proud to host CHI campers since 2003.

During the week, campers choose
to follow a particular academic track, either CSI at CHI, CHI Stream Team, CHI Creativity or FLY CHI. CHI faculty have distinguished instructional credentials
and have been selected for their experience and enthusiasm
working with this age group.
While the typical CHI student
excels at academics, many are pleasantly surprised by the challenging academic
experiences they will have at camp. Best of all, our CHI learning environment
supports acceptance, growth and excellence.
Having fun and learning to feel
confident in a new setting are important components of the CHI agenda. Our social
program includes group games, swimming, bowling, putt-putt and Frisbee golf, table
games, relays and other non-competitive sports.
Because CHI draws from a large geographic area, campers will meet kids
from other schools and cities and have the opportunity to form friendships beyond
their normal peer group.
