Jackson Hole summer camps in Grand Teton and Yellowstone

Summer Camps

Learning Shouldn’t Stop in Summer

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.

We are excited to announce that we will offer summer camps for eight weeks beginning on July 6 for Grades 1-4 only. 

We have unfortunately made the tough decision to cancel all other summer camps:

  • All Grades 5-6 camps (Mountains & Mudpots, Boats & Boots, Mission Jackson Hole)
  • Leadership & Camping for Teens (Grades 7-9)  
  • All early childhood camps remain cancelled
  • All overnight teen camps remain cancelled

Due to operational changes, we have decided to formally cancel all pre-existing Grades 1-4 camps and replace them with a single camp each week: Teton Junior Science School. Teton Junior Science School will take place entirely on our Jackson Campus (700 Coyote Canyon Rd). We are able to offer this camp at the cost of $265 per week thanks to generous support from our donors. Financial assistance is still available to families in need; please click here for more info.

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.

Our Locations

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.

Our Staff

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.

Our History

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.
