Our education programs provide a variety of opportunities for volunteers to connect to the Missouri River. Are you interested in volunteering? E-mail our Education Director, Kristen Schulte

Financial Aid is Available to Attend Our Summer Camps

Financial aid is need based and is available for each of our summer camp programs. We typically begin awarding scholarships in mid-April and then continue making awards on a rolling basis until all available funds are awarded. Our financial aid application is an easy one-page document and can be found on each summer camp webpage.

Interested in Sponsoring a Student to Attend Summer Camp?

Experiences like our summer camps are unfortunately few and far between for many students in our community. Sponsoring a student to attend one of our summer camps will fund the full tuition for one student to build their confidence and relationship with the environment. To make your gift, please email our Education Director, Kristen Schulte
