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 mail@gsmit.org

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.
