We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation. If the college decides that onsite meetings are not permitted, we will shift the residency to a virtual setting and notify students of the change.

24th Annual Adirondack Environmental Studies Residency

During the Fall term, students choose from eleven, environmentally related courses using a blended model that combines an online or independent study component with one onsite meeting in the beautiful Adirondacks.

While at camp, students will attend plenary sessions and group activities, hear from guest speakers and meet in small group seminars to focus on their selected course(s).


This unique setting and experience will provide students with a broader perspective of issues related to the environment and offer hands-on activities to enhance the learning experience.

Students may register for up to two courses.  If registering for two courses, students may select one course in Section A and one course in Section B.
