During the virtual meeting, students will hear from guests speakers and attend workshops to enhance their learning experience.

During the Fall term, students choose from five, 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).
