Smokies Science Investigations
*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 07/18/2020
Please note this camp has been cancelled for 2020 due to COVID-19. We hope to see you in 2021!
Come to Tremont and experience Great Smoky Mountains National Park from a field scientist’s perspective. You will swim with the fishes and identify the myriad species that thrive in the Smokies or hold a live bird in your hands before it takes off to the treetops. Then after a day chock-full of adventure, you can sit under a starry sky and identify the frogs you hear calling to each other.
This camp is an opportunity for you to learn about the natural world and the methods scientists use to study it by participating in real science projects in the park. You will experience 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 experience. Expect a mixture of field science and fun—swimming, hiking, stories around the campfire—all in the Great Smoky Mountains!
For this program, participants will stay in our cabin-style tents in Walker Grove Tent Village on campus.
