KSS offers summer science education programs including Discovery Camp, Counselor Assistant Program and Keystone Mountain Adventures, which are designed for youth aged 7-17 years old. In 2006, an International Camp is being offered to allow students introduction to Russian, Spanish, French or Mandarin Chinese languages. As campers, age 8 to 13, participate in Earthtracks about aquatic ecology and the formation of the mountains, their lessons will be immediately translated into one of these four languages. In addition to inquiry-based lessons, activities during these summer programs include rafting, camping, hiking, and exploring the mountains. During the calendar school year, KSS offers residential programs for 2nd to 12th grade students on topics including forest ecology, aquatics, geology, snow science and environmental issues. KSS also offers field experiences for resort guests, families and community groups.
