Each “Adventure” session is led by experts in the field and is designed to offer a meaningful and educational experience, sharing the same values and missions of our larger Summer Institutes.

Every Vermont high school student in grades 9-12 is welcome to attend, whether they have attended a GIV Summer Session or if they are new to GIV!

One Day Adventures are FREE for Vermont high school students. Registering is easy, and everyone who registers will be welcome to attend.
