Our students may have now returned home, but they won’t be forgotten – here is the final slideshow with all of the highlights from their time in Cambridge.
As we finish packing up the Program Office that has been our base of operations for a month, we wanted to leave you with some final words from Greg:
Dear Families of the Cambridge Tradition —
CamTrad celebrated the end of a fantastic four weeks by awarding prizes to some of our students who have really shone both in and outside of the classroom. Choosing the recipients of subject prizes was a near-impossible task as there were so many students deserving of recognition — a true testament to the quality of the intellectually curious and dedicated students we’ve had this summer at CamTrad!
The Activities Directors kicked off the prize-giving with Cambridge scarves for two students who have shown exceptional keenness for activities throughout the month. These went to David Rodgers and Irene Sanchez-Casas. Well done for really making the most of what CamTrad had to offer!
Each year, prizes are awarded to two students who epitomize the CamTrad ethos: the generosity of spirit and the enthusiasm that we see in all our students and staff. This year, Cambridge scarves were awarded to Saburo Suzuki and Haley Kempf, whose commitment and positive attitude has consistently impressed the admin staff!
Greg Gonzalez also announced some special prizes: to CamTrad Spelling Bee champion Aniruddh Murthy, to Hope Kinloch for correctly answering a trivia question from the Beast, and to Robert, Haley and Charlotte for joining him on every early morning swim at the (sometimes pretty chilly) Jesus Lido.
Subject prizes were awarded by each teacher. Teachers picked out subject-specific prizes including books, scarves and even the promise of lab placements next summer! The prize recipients were as follows:
Gabby Fooks for Advertising, Markering and Consumer Culture

With a heavy heart CamTrad is saying goodbye after a spectacular month. Students have been checking out from 3 o’clock this morning! Here’s a photo of everything going smoothly at check-out at 3:30am.
The Medicine and the Brain major class had a fantastic month. Below are some of the highlights: selfies with self-made brain-hats; tea, scones and quizzes in Grantchester; (pretend) MEG-scans and MRI-sequences in the MRC cognition and brain science unit…
Together, they truly explored the brain from all possible angles!

This week they curated their own virtual exhibitions of objects in Cambridge.
