Residential programs

Mountain Stewards

Residential programs, based at the Spruce Knob Mountain Center, are ideal for younger children, shorter visits, or science-intensive programs. When staying in dormitories, participants are not expected to cook or set up camp as they would be in a field-based program. This is ideal for students who would like to focus on other challenges and make greater use of SKMC's indoor facilities.

Traditionally our programs begin with a parent and student meeting at your school. We present a slideshow to help prepare for the trip and answer any questions both groups may have. 


  • Students explore the surrounding area on day trips
  • Typically two to four days in length
  • Students sleep in dormitories
  • Meals are prepared daily by our cooks
