East Tennessee Unschooled Summer Camp is a 7 night secular camp for approximately 80 unschooling teens (13-19) from all over the country. There are many activities, camper & staff run workshops, jam sessions, a hammock haven, bonfires, swimming, a climbing tower & ropes course challenge, mentoring, dancing, making friends, and so much more.

We believe all children should be treated with respect and given opportunities for growth and connection without arbitrary boundaries that limit and confine their reaching, and that they should have a safe and loving environment to do so. It is our hope that our campers will learn more about themselves, make lifelong friendships, and discover new interests...all while having an amazing time in a beautiful setting.

ETUSC is a non-denominational, non-religious camp. We welcome campers and staff of all races, ethnic backgrounds, genders, religious beliefs, sexual orientations, economic backgrounds, political affiliations, and physical capabilities.

The food was AMAZING. Meat, tofu, salads, fruit, desserts, and snacks all the time! Scotty deserves a round of applause (which I think he got, at the end of the week) because everything was amazing!

My overall camp experience was utterly fantastic. :-) I can’t really describe it with words - how could one even begin to talk about the late nights, the companionship, the knowledge that the people around you were all amazing and alive?

My overall experience at camp was really great. I could really tell that the staffers and volunteers were truly trying to make a comfortable and fun environment for everyone, and greatly exceeding that. You guys went above and beyond any other camp I’ve seen, which made my experience a great one
