Summer Discovery is rooted in family. In 1966, Mike and Judy Musiker sold Camp Keewanee in Parksville, NY, and ran their first of many Musiker Student Tours programs. Fast forward to the 1980s when Bob and Jimmy Musiker joined the family business, and the first Summer Discovery pre-college program began at UCLA in 1986. Two years later, Summer Discovery at Cambridge University in England was introduced, and the rest is history!
Under the leadership of Bob and Jimmy Musiker, we’ve forged unique university partnerships with some of the most prestigious universities across the globe. In 2021, Adriane Thorpe took the helm at CEO of Summer Discovery and Summer Institute for the Gifted. We have unparalleled experience in the pre-college industry. Safety and security is always our top priority. With our experienced team’s support, we are committed to students’ academic and personal development.
