One Rockin' Weekend

Are you 18 or older and want to experience the fun that you remember having as a kid at summer camp? Maybe you never went to summer camp in your youth, but still want memories like that. Well, the Montana Learning Center at Canyon Ferry Lake is offering a chance for you to be a kid again. Come join us this summer for one rockin’ weekend!

Camp Details

This fun-packed weekend includes a few hours of classroom instruction at the picturesque Montana Learning Center, where you’ll learn basic Montana rock and mineral identification and rock hounding techniques, followed by opportunities to apply what you learned over the rest of the weekend.

The classroom instruction will be held after you check in Friday night. Saturday will include a 12-mile boat ride down Canyon Ferry Lake to White Earth, where you’ll surface collect agate. That evening, you’ll wash, cut and polish your very own agate to keep. Sunday morning includes the opportunity for you to sift through gravel to find your own Montana sapphires and/or garnets. Experienced MLC instructors will be available to provide you with guidance every step of the way.

This overnight camp is for adults over the age of 18.

Teachers participating in this continuing-education program can earn Montana Office of Public Instruction Renewal Units.

Program Options:

Day Only = $375 per camper (Includes dinner the first night and lunch on both Saturday and Sunday.)

Overnight = $495 per camper (Includes lodging at the MLC that Friday and Saturday nights and all meals during the camp.)

Camp Dates: August 25th – 27th, 2023
