**We invite you to participate in “Forever Wild,” an NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop. Participants will spend an unforgettable week at the Great Camps of the Adirondacks to explore Gilded Age America from the unique perspective of the wilderness.**
--DATES: July 7–13 or July 14–20, 2013
--LOCATION: Adirondacks (Upstate New York). Participants will lodge at Camp Huntington, one of the Great Camps and National Historic Landmark—never before opened to the public.
--WHO SHOULD APPLY: Forever Wild seeks a diverse group of full and part-time educators from a variety of humanities disciplines, including teachers and librarians in public, charter, independent and religiously affiliated schools, as well as home-schooling parents. While the content focus might be more appropriate to the middle and high school student, all K-12 educators are invited to apply. To foster creative discussions related to pedagogical approaches, we aim to create a cross-discipline and mixed grade-level cohort.
--AWARD: Teachers selected to participate will receive an NEH $1200 stipend to defray expenses associated with your participation in the Forever Wild program, such as travel and books. All participants will receive their stipend at the end of the week’s program, less $165 for the week’s all-inclusive room and board at Camp Huntington.
