Escape to the Smokies and join Tremont’s teacher naturalists for an exciting look at what Tremont has to offer.

This weekend is an opportunity 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. It also reduces the cost of the trip for each participant.

“I had no idea what to expect in terms of how many teachers [would be] here and their level of interest. Excellent dialogues with teachers.” – Tim C.

Cost: A $75 registration fee to partially cover food and lodging. Tremont covers the rest of the cost because we understand the importance and value of this pre-trip experience for new and returning teachers. We hope that participants will learn more about this special place and the range of opportunities available here. For more information call (865)448-6709 or e-mail [email protected]

Teachers, after attending this program, when you bring your school group you will qualify to come free and your students will get a reduced rate on a three day or longer experience.

Important Information regarding Programs during COVID-19

Thank you for your interest in our program! During this prolonged period of pandemic and isolation, our work of connecting people and nature has never felt more essential.

We are planning to move forward with our programs in 2021, as we keep a close watch on trends and best practices. Given the uncertainties right now, we are holding off on the specific details we normally include in a welcome letter, i.e. arrival time and procedures, etc.

We feel very good about the safety procedures we put in place during fall 2020 and will likely keep them the same for our 2021 programs. But we also know that things will change during the year, so we are asking you to check back at this website for more specific information as we get closer to the date of your program.

If you have any questions or concerns between now and then, please feel free to get in touch by email or phone: [email protected] or 865-448-6709 ext. 16.
