Camp Big Sky
Summer 2018 Camp Bulletins
Camp Big Sky is our popular youth day program. Our mission at Camp Big Sky is to engage young people in educational, outdoor, community experiences. We provide a variety of programming such as going on hikes, experimenting with science, reading books, playing games & sports, and making crafts (just to name a few). Campers have access to a vibrant community park as well as professional instruction from golf, swimming, and outdoor recreation pros. We also partner with the Historic Crail Ranch, a local homestead museum, to explore the rich history of Montana. This is truly a community collaboration that offers the best opportunities for Big Sky youth.
For the Summer of 2018, Camp Big Sky is proud to announce: Camp Big Sky Adventurers. The Adventurers camp is a new branch of programming for our older campers. We will continue to offer our usual programming as well, now called Camp Big Sky Classic. Click on the links below for more details.

Our home is at the Big Sky Community Park yurts. They are fully stocked with everything a great summer camp needs. Have a look inside!
The Yurts have loads of sports equipment for playing field games. We have a massive arts & crafts shelf for creative pursuits. The reading nook has comfy chairs and a library of children’s books. We love science, which means we have various science equipment including bug nets, magnifying glasses, a microscope, a GPS, and colorful encyclopedias for reference. We have a camp museum with our collection of rocks, bones, feathers, and other interesting finds. And much more!
At Camp we offer all kinds of fun games and activities!
We have our very own sandbox, a magnet table, Lego collection, arts & crafts, board games, and a paved area for riding bicycles & scooters. We have access to all of the wonderful park facilities. The park has a playground, basketball court, volleyball court, skate park, climbing boulders, soccer fields, baseball fields, and fishing pond. There is a nearby creek with a walking trail for playing in the water and capturing bugs. A short walk from the park are the community tennis courts, Big Sky Resort Golf Course, and the Historic Crail Ranch.
Every week we invite special guests who are professional artists, educators, and naturalists that share their specialties through fun activities!
In years past, we have had special guests that included archery with Jack Creek Preserve, river science with Gallatin River Task Force, geo-caching, Bear Aware with US Forest Service, art parties, goat wrangling with a local rancher family, and Montana history lessons with Crail Ranch.
