Camp to provide another summer of outdoor study
February 23, 2023
The Montana Natural Resources Youth Camp is now taking applications for July 16 -21.
For 37 years, the camp has provided youth an opportunity to study in an outdoor classroom.
Today’s scientific principles, economic realities, historical heritage, and social perspectives help these future leaders in their quest to gain natural resources perspective that is informed and progressive. Campers learn about forests, streams, soils, geology, rangeland, wildlife, and recreation and spend half-day rafting the Clark Fork River’s Alberton Gorge. In between the field sessions, professionals who volunteer from various natural resources-based agencies and industries, specialty evening programs, guest speakers, and hands-on learning through discovery and campfires provide for a lasting summer camp experience.

There are many scholarship opportunities available to cover camp fees and/or transportation costs, and some of these opportunities will extend to out-of-state participants as well. https://www.montana.edu/extension/forestry/mnryc/stipends_sponsorship.html
