Trees Atlanta                         

Camp operates with a different theme each week.

Week 1: Pollinators: Bats, Bugs, and Birds
Discover the importance of the critters who have a hand in helping our forest grow during National Pollinator Week! We will find evidence of their work along the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum and include fun activities to demonstrate how pollination occurs.

Week 2: Urban Explorers: Conservationists of the Urban Forest
Did you know Atlanta has one of the densest urban forests in the nation? This week will focus on how watershed, soil, climate indicators, and development relates to people, animals, and plant life in urban areas.

Week 3: Foresters: The Canopy Umbrella
Discover the layers of the forest from the forest floor at our feet, the understory above our heads, to the canopy where the sun beats down. Grab your binoculars and field journals. We will explore the diverse animal and plant species that call each urban forest layer home.

Week 4: Pollinators: Trees, Flowers, and Fruit
Find out what growing plants need to be pollinated, and how that helps them thrive in our city in the forest. We will learn how these spaces are created by nature and also by professionals through fun design projects.

Week 5: Urban Explorers: Navigators of the Urban Forest
Grab a map and a compass to discover how to use orienteering tools to find your way through the city in the forest! We will play fun games and activities like geocaching and scavenger hunts to journey through the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum.

Week 6: Foresters: Home Sweet Home
Foresters examine the urban forests that many different plants and animals call home. Each layer of the forest supports a healthy urban ecosystem. We’ll collect natural materials for creative art projects and conduct ecology experiments at the Kendeda Center.

Week 7: Naturalist Week
Naturalists study how reptiles, amphibians, insects, birds, and fungi relate to our urban forest. This week will include hands-on exploration, interpretation, live animal encounters, and experiments out in the field and at the Kendeda Center.

Week 8: Artist and the Arborist
Nature inspires the artist. We venture out and get creative with the natural materials growing in Atlanta’s urban forest. We will gather materials to create various types of forest art!

Youth Theological Initiative

The Youth Theological Initiative was founded at Emory in 1993. We offer a 2-week, residential summer academy on Emory’s campus. The program is for students in the 9th-12th grades in the 2021-2022 school year. At YTI, youth explore their own questions about faith, justice, and their place in the world. Our program is rooted in Christian traditions and is at the same time radically inclusive. Youth of any faith are welcome. The goal of YTI is not to lead youth to particular beliefs, but to provide theological tools they can use to make sense of their own faith. YTI is known for our diversity. The Summer Academy is a unique experience where youth can experience deep belonging in the midst of this diversity. Over 1000 high school students have attended YTI’s Summer Academy, and many still consider it one of the most important experiences of their lives. July 10-23, 2022. Priority Application Deadline: April 1. Financial aid is available.

For more information, please contact the director of YTI, Dr. Jill Weaver, at jweaver@emory.edu.
