Jealous that your kids get to hang out at the Montana Learning Center? Wishing you could hang out by the lake too? Be a kid again and attend the Adult Science Camp!

The same high-quality STEM based summer camp programming is available for people over the age of 18! The Adult Science Camp will focus on geology, basic rock and mineral identification and rock hounding on the shores of Canyon Ferry Lake. The weekend will kick off with classroom instruction on Friday evening, then Saturday features a boat ride to White Earth. You will collect, wash, cut and polish your own agate to keep. Sunday features looking for garnet and sapphire.

Participants can choose to participate during the daily programming only, or stay overnight in the camp lodging facilities on the Montana Learning Center campus. Proceeds from this camp support summer learning camps for kids.

The Montana Learning Center is located at the northern-most point of Canyon Ferry Reservoir, outside of Helena, Montana. This organization provides STEM related programming to the community in the form of camps for kids and adults, teacher trainings, telescope rentals, and public stargazing nights.
