Developing The Leaders and Stewards of Tomorrow


WHO WE ARE:
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.

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