Pre-College Weekend Field Trips and Events
Skidmore's summer campus hosts many concerts, lectures, performances, and weekend activities. In addition, we offer Pre-College students optional weekend events and field trips to local and regional destinations at no extra charge except spending money.

Our project helped launch Skidmore's new Community Garden. Students toured the garden, then spent the morning weeding, planting and harvesting fruits and vegetables, many of which are served at Skidmore's Dining Hall.
