Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I get there?
The train station is in Brattleboro, VT, about 6 miles away.
The closest airport is Hartford, CT (1.5 hours away).
We can help with transportation if you share your itinerary with us.
and arrive by 3pm Saturday afternoon and leave at or after 4pm on Thursday; a shuttle will be running to and from camp at those times. Feel free to call before you make your flight plans so we can help you determine the best travel times if you need a ride to the airport.
Does camp have a THEME?
Rather than provide a theme or general question each year, we choose presenters based on camper's feedback, relevant world topics, and staff recommendations. We have found that each year, a theme organically emerges built from shared reflection, knowledge and personal experience. This year, the focus will be on the Humanity of Teaching as opposed to a specific age or subject matter.
Oops... I forgot something!
Don't worry! We have a small camp store and larger stores are a short drive away if you forget -- transportation can be arranged!
How do I register?
Teachers' camp fills up very quickly, we encourage you to register as soon as possible! GMTC 2024 Registration opens March 1.
What does camp cost?

$820 per camper*
$410 per child
* Locals who commute each day pay half price
*Alumni receive a $50 discount
All meals, lodging and tuition as well as a certificate for +/- 20 professional development hours are included in the fee.
When do I pay?
A deposit of $200 and the registration form is required to hold your spot.
All payments are due by June 1st - no payments can be accepted at camp this year!
Are there scholarships available?
We have tried our best to keep costs affordable but if this fee presents a real hardship for you, we want to fund small scholarships for those needing help to come. As Tom Hunter always said, "Money should not be the thing that keeps you from coming!"
