Summer Camps and Summer Programs at Hobart and William Smith Colleges - Geneva, NY

Environmental Studies Summer Youth Institute

Environmental Studies Summer Youth Institute

Description:
The Environmental Studies Summer Youth Institute at Hobart and William Smith Colleges provides exceptional opportunities to explore the scientific, social, and humanistic perspectives of environmental issues.
The Institute offers a two-week, college-level interdisciplinary program for talented high-school students entering their junior and senior years. The program is designed as an introduction to a variety of environmental issues and perspectives on nature and our environment. Students will conduct research with faculty members in a variety of locations: on the HWS Scandling (a 65-foot vessel on Seneca Lake), in streams, quaking bogs, the Adirondack Mountains, and the Colleges' science laboratories.
Working in the field, in laboratories, in classrooms, and on a four-day Adirondack research trip, students will explore a range of topics in environmental policy, economics, and ethics, and come to see the natural world through the eyes of artists, historians, philosophers, and scientists. A love of nature, learning, and the outdoors provides the focus for this unique educational experience.
The Environmental Studies Summer Youth Institute is located in the heart of New York's Finger Lakes region, on beautiful Seneca Lake.
