During the Fall term, students choose from ten, environmentally related courses using a blended model that combines an online or independent study component with one on-site 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.
