Yosemite Institute Announces Final Openings for Summer Group Program
Residential Youth Education Programs in Yosemite National Park
Yosemite Institute, a campus of NatureBridge, announced a rare last minute opening in late August for groups seeking a residential educational experience in Yosemite National Park. Yosemite Institute programs combine academic study with physical challenges, team building activities, and service projects.
Participants stay at the Yosemite Institute Crane Flat campus and spend days exploring sequoia groves and alpine meadows and visiting Yosemite’s famous sites. Itineraries are customized for each group based on the group’s interests and goals.
Available dates are August 29- September 3, 2010. Group leaders are encouraged to contact Dena Staggs at 209.379.9511 ext 25 or email@example.com. To learn more, visit our summer programs page on our website http://www.naturebridge.org/yosemite/summer
