LEGO robotics – To the Moon & Back
Would you like to relive the amazing challenges of the Apollo 11 moon landing?

Working as a team, campers will create a lander, a replica of the Apollo Lunar Module. They will learn how to control a drone and gain skills to land it on a map of the lunar surface. Students will learn how to collaborate with their teammates and increase their knowledge of science, math, engineering and technology.

Fly to the moon with the Montana Learning Center’s expert instructors.


Magic of Science
Come see how magical science can be!

Campers will be wowed by seemingly unreal experiments in the Magic of Science camp. Students will experience explosions, magically make things disappear, and find that everything is not quite as it seems. Don’t worry, safety goggles will be provided in this camp where anything can happen! 


Rock On
Welcome geologists of the future.

Come dig into this geologic gem of a camp where you’ll discover the earth from the inside out. Feast your eyes upon our massive rock and mineral displays, collect your own gemstones, and crack open your own geode! Campers also  will channel their inner “Sherlock” and uncover new treasures during a fossil dig.

Can you dig it?


Zombie Apocalypse
Imagine that it’s the middle of the night and suddenly you’re awakened to an emergency broadcast that simply states “RUN!”

Zombie Apocalypse campers are the new protectors of the Earth and its people. They must gain vital knowledge in biology, environmental sciences and conservation at the salvaged science lab to defeat the Zombies.

Do you have what it takes to survive the nightmare? If so, be prepared to spend a lot of time outside and find the way to the future.


Water, Water Everywhere
Do you know the ways of water?

Campers will dive into the dynamic effects of water in its various forms on the landscapes of Montana. They also will map local watersheds and perform water quality monitoring by exploring the flora and fauna of Canyon Ferry.

All hands-on activities occur in the splash zone, so pack a swimsuit and sunscreen for a fun filled week!

“My 11 year old daughter, Kennedy, is still telling us fun stories and she has already made plans to return next year. This was her best camp experience yet. I can’t say enough about the smile on her face when she’s telling us about her camp experience. Thank you so much for giving her this experience!”
