Join Teton Science Schools (TSS) for outdoor adventure, hands-on learning, and fun. TSS summer camps are equal parts education and adventure–we call our camp leaders “educators” and not “camp counselors” for a reason. Explore Jackson Hole and Teton Valley while making new friends, learning new skills and discovering new places.
Learning Shouldn’t Stop in Summer
Get Outside and Experience Your World
Preschool & Kindergarten Camps
Our Preschool and Kindergarten camps are designed for young learners with big curiosities and imaginations. Inspired by Reggio Emilia and Forest Kindergarten practices, Teton Science Schools’ summer camps engage children in the natural world through exploration and play. Preschool and Kindergarten camps are offered on our Jackson and Teton Valley campuses.
Jackson Campus Elementary Camps (Entering Grades 1-6)
Teton Science Schools’ day camps provide authentic, unforgettable experiences in one of the world’s great wild places. Every day, elementary campers will play, observe, hike, create, experiment, and work with others outdoors (with variation based on camp theme and age level). All of our camps incorporate science learning through hands-on, outdoor activities as well as social and emotional development.
Middle and High School Camps
Our middle and high school summer camps are geared towards students ready to take the next step in outdoor adventure and scientific exploration. Students may backpack through Grand Teton National Park, camp in Yellowstone, participate in meaningful service projects, traverse our high ropes course or conduct field-based research in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. No matter the activity, middle and high school students build community, discover their strengths and develop a love for the great outdoors.
Teton Science Schools offers camps in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Teton Valley, Idaho. We use the wild lands of Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Bridger-Teton National Forest and the National Elk Refuge as our classroom.
Teton Science Schools’ instructors are dedicated to providing a safe and welcoming experience for all students. Our instructors are skilled leaders, educators and outdoor enthusiasts who are passionate about connecting students to the natural world. They inspire students to explore the unknown, think creatively, and develop new skills and friendships.
In 1967, Ted Major took 12 students into the field to study the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Today, we serve thousands of students from around the world. Our programs have grown, but our philosophy remains the same: students learn best about the natural world when they’re in nature.
