Tree Huggers

Day Program

WANTED: Inquisitive minds and curious characters for a week-long expedition into the great unknown. Tree Huggers will join a troupe of inquiring colleagues for nature-based adventures, discovery and documentation out among the stunning locations of Telluride’s backyard! Join Academy field staff and a slew of specialists who will give us a unique perspective on the natural world that surrounds us. From the small to the sizeable, we will participate in nature scavenger hunts, interesting experiments, “found-object” art projects and much more. All the while we will be documenting our adventures in our very own field journals that will tell our story of discovery through pictures, presses and artistic expressions!

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.
