To Register:

2017 Montana Youth Range Camp Application


Campers will be introduced to 25 of Montana’s important range plants—grasses, forbs, and shrubs—and will learn about the interaction of soils, water, plants, wildlife, and livestock on the range. The camp provides an excellent opportunity for youth of varying backgrounds to become more aware of the value and potential of Montana’s rangeland. This well organized, balanced, and educational program brings together range professionals and interested students to learn in the great outdoors. Evening programs and activities allow campers an opportunity to meet new friends and develop lasting friendships.

Camp registration fee is $200 which includes meals, lodging and supplies. Awards are given for outstanding individual and team achievement. Scholarships may be available to cover the cost of registration, call your local conservation district for more information.
