Teacher Escape Weekends

Teacher Escape Weekends are designed to meet other teachers, share ideas, learn about new Tremont programs and answer questions you may have before your school’s visit. It is also a time to relax, enjoy the mountain scenery and make new friends. Attendance in this program allows teachers to attend free of charge when their school participates in a three or five day Tremont school program.

Workshops are added throughout the year as funding and staffing allows. Join our email list to be the first to know.

Please note that our 2020 Teacher Escape Weekends will be virtual. Learn more below!

Virtual – Teacher Escape Weekend III

September 25 - September 26

Teacher Escape Weekend will be virtual in 2020

Virtual TEW Schedule, Q&A’s, and Session Info

Let’s prepare for a successful year together.

With the uncertainty surrounding the coming school year and the need to reimagine what learning will look like, this year’s Teacher Escape Weekends are more important than ever. Whether you are returning to the classroom, forging ahead with online learning, or still unsure, Teacher Escape Weekend was rebuilt with you in mind.

This year’s virtual format will offer the same Tremont experience you have come to know and love. Forget those exhausting virtual meetings; our time together will be productive and fun, with time for individual reflection, breakout rooms to discuss critical issues, and resources for use at Tremont and in schoolyards—and even virtually—this school year. And yes, we’ll even be going outside!

What to Expect

Even if you already know you won’t be able to visit Tremont this year, we’ll develop ideas and share resources to make this unprecedented school year a success. Together, we’ll tackle questions like:

  • How can I utilize outdoor spaces in my teaching if my school doesn’t have an outdoor classroom? How can I use outdoor spaces if I’m teaching virtually?
  • What benefits does outdoor learning provide other than a safer way to socially distance?
  • How do I promote social and emotional learning if my students aren’t together?
  • How do I utilize existing virtual community science tools in a way that is pertinent and accessible to my students?

And if you are planning to visit Tremont this year, you’ll still get the same financial rewards for you and your students as in years past: a discount for your students and your fee covered in full.
