Camp Big Sky
What: Camp Big Sky is our popular youth day program. Our main focus at Camp Big Sky is to play outside and be social. We go on hikes, experiment with science, read books, play games/sports, and make crafts (just to name a few). Every week the campers receive professional instruction from tennis, golf, and swimming pros. We also partner with the Historic Crail Ranch to explore the rich history of Montana. We provide a variety of programming to keep kids engaged. This is truly a community collaboration that provides the best summer that Big Sky has to offer its youth.
Who: Children entering 1st through 5th grade.
When: The camp days are Monday-Friday, from 8:30am-5:30pm. For Summer 2017, Camp runs 10 weeks from June 19th through August 25th* (with the exception: no Camp on the holiday July 4th).
*The last day of camp is dependent on the start of the next school year. This date has not yet been finalized, but Aug 25th is likely.
Where: We are located in the Yurt at the Big Sky Community Park. From Meadow Village, head north on Little Coyote Rd, go past the Big Sky Chapel and pond to the first right-hand road. Look for the Big Sky Community Park sign at the entrance. The yurt is at the far end of the park; you can’t miss it.
