Praise for Summer Programs

"The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) Family Academic Programs joined forces with The Mountain Institute in July to provide CTY families an absolutely wonderful 4-day environmental experience at Spruce Knob Mountain Center. These families were enthralled by the beauty of the area; impressed by the dedication and knowledge of the staff; and thrilled by the many activities---hiking, birding, exploring a cave, as well as learning about astronomy, navigation techniques, mountain geography, hydrology, and much more. The only complaint by the participants was the program wasn't long enough! CTY looks forward to doing another exciting and challenging program with The Mountain Institute next summer."

Thanks to Mary Crowley of CTY for her kind words and to the staff of the Appalachia Program for their dedication and hard work. We hope to have Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth up on the mountain for many years to come.
