Tremont Institute offers over- night summer youth programs in June and July for ages 9-17. The camp has several options from nature discovery camps for the younger children to backpacking through the wilderness and field science camps for older teens. Even the youngest adventur- ers can get in on the action by attending Firefly Camp with a parent in tow. This introducto- ry overnight is made for chil- dren ages 4-9. Choose one, two or three nights for you and your little one. Sessions begin on July 5th. One night: $92 for child and parent.


First-time and younger campers are a perfect fit for Discovery Camp, which involves searching for salaman- ders, collecting insects, swim- ming and exploring hiking trails. For kids ages 9-12, this option is offered June 13-18, June 27 - July 2 and July 18-23. Cost: $572. There are several options for campers ages 13-17. Many will enjoy spending 10


days among a community of other teenage outdoor enthusi- asts during the Teen High


Adventure! Teens will develop leadership skills while learning outdoor living ethics, as well as learning firsthand about the animals and plants that call these mountains home. This 10-day backpacking adventure ends with a whitewater rafting trip and will run from July 18- 28. Cost: $1,199. A shorter version of this


camp, Wilderness Adventure Trek, will take place during two sessions: June 13-18 and June 27-July 2. Cost: $625. Backcountry Ecology Ex- pedition allows campers to explore the WILD SIDE of the Smokies. Butterflies, beetles, birds, and botany are just a few of the subjects of our investiga- tions as we explore the creeks and hollows in search of the next organism new to the park or even to science! Space for this camp is very limited but is still available for the June 27- July 2 and July 5-10 session. Cost: $638


Field Ecology Adventure camp is an opportunity for teens to learn about the natural world and the methods scien- tists use to study it by partici- pating in real science projects


in the park. Campers will expe- rience hands-on studies of everything from bugs to bears and fungi to birds. A camping trip and team projects make this a unique and exciting expe- rience from July 13-17. Cost: $1,199. The Tremont Institute is the only summer camp inside


the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, offering a space for discovery and personal development in one of the coun- try’s most ecologically diverse areas. The facility, located only four hours from Nashville, fea- tures a 500,000 acre “classroom” and dormitory-style housing which can accommodate 135


campers. The fully-staffed kitchen serves three meals a day.


Need-based financial aid is
