Developing The Leaders and Stewards of Tomorrow

Steward is a residential semester or year-long environmental science and outdoor education school for middle school students. Steward’s rigorous academic curriculum aligns with traditional middle school courses while particularly focusing on hands-on environmental science and ethics. Students will spend at least four weeks of each semester on outdoor adventure expeditions. Learning how to live in intentional community with a focus on sustainable practices is at the core of this program. Students will leave the Steward with a stronger sense of self and be prepared to think critically, communicate effectively, organize themselves independently, and be the leaders and stewards of tomorrow.

Steward is a program of Incarnation Camp and Conference Center, a non-profit 501(c)(3) with a 131 year legacy of delivering life-changing education, retreat and camping programs to thousands of youth and adults each year. Our beautiful campus spans over 700 acres in eastern Connecticut.

Creating academically curious leaders and stewards of tomorrow through academic and outdoor exploration, ethical reasoning, and self-discovery in an intentional community.
