Fantastic Flora

Overnight Program
AGES 9-11

This Pinhead Institute partnership program gives students the opportunity to participate in traditional Telluride Academy activities while also learning about the special and unique flora of the San Juan Mountains region! Cultivate your green thumb in this fun and educational program in which students will learn all about “botany” – the science of plants! We’ll create nature journals, ID different types of local flora, dissect flowers, learn to draw from a professional botanical illustrator and participate in exciting nature hikes. When we aren’t filling our brains with environmental knowledge, we’ll be exploring the great outdoors and going on fantastic wilderness adventures!

Telluride Academy's Overnight Policy

Our talented instructors work hard to combat student homesickness on overnight programs. For many students, this experience might be their first time camping or away from home! In the days leading up to the overnight(s), the instructors have positive conversations with the groups to get them excited and prepared for their overnight adventures. This dynamic gets interrupted when a student is picked up early from their overnight. For this reason, we can not accommodate early pick-ups, unless in the case of an emergency. If your child does not want to attend the overnight, or if you have prior commitments that require early pick-up accommodations, we ask that you consider choosing a day program instead. Please call our office with any questions or concerns.
