We are currently sending my children to a wonderful program in our area for gifted kids on Saturdays. We are going to be moving out of state, and I am not sure the best way to go about finding similar ones in the new areas. I do know that SIG isn't offered in any of the places. We homeschool, so this program has been very important for us.

DH is interviewing in Oklahoma City, Omaha, Lincoln NE, Logan UT, Laramie WY, and Pittsburgh.

I am tempted to vacation here for our summers so the kids can attend the program, but DH thinks that would be too expensive, so if anyone has any idea about any such programs in the areas listed above, I'd appreciate it.

I'd call the local school districts and ask, or do an internet search. We also moved but I found lots of resources in our new location.

Best of luck!!

In Lincoln, NE, if you have a girl, she could do All Girls/All Math when she is high school aged.

We live about an hour south of Laramie in Fort Collins. Here, my oldest is planning/hoping to do a summer program through one of the middle schools this summer. They have a STEM program going this summer and I understand that they may do so again in the future. If driving south an hour isn't impossible, that may be a possibility.
