Nestled on a hill in the heart of the Green Mountains, the campus of Northern Vermont University-Johnson (formerly Johnson State College) offers a spectacular natural environment, along with modern educational facilities. The Institute is held in classrooms, lecture halls, computer laboratories, dorms, and a cafeteria on campus, as well as the surrounding natural environment. Participants are also able to use the Library and Learning Center as well as the college pool at the Shape Facility. Northern Vermont University’s campus is beautiful, small, and manageable, with up-to-date facilities—an ideal setting for TDI. Its compact layout makes it inviting and navigable for young and old students alike.

Meals on Campus
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the Northern Vermont University-Johnson campus cafeteria. Campers love this part of TDI! There is no assigned seating, so campers can sit with old or new friends at each meal. There are many food choices, most of them healthy.
Please talk to your child about making healthy choices while they are at TDI. Examples: encourage them to drink milk rather than soda at every meal, and to eat a vegetable once in awhile!
Each morning we have a small snack and drink at our break in Bentley Hall. The snack is often something like a granola bar. Each afternoon we have a drink break, with drinks being mostly lemonade, iced tea, and water.
We also provide an evening snack in the dorms before bedtime.
