We will use our 2021 changing exhibit The Vikings Begin to make discoveries about the mightiest explorers! Who were they? What treasure did they leave behind? What weapons did they use, and where did they raid? What happened when a Viking died and what’s with the horns on the hats? We will learn all about Nordic culture, conflict, and exploration in this exciting camp.
Look out! If it is flung, shot, launched, or thrown, it’s ballistics. We will have an explosive time with spears, arrows, rocks, rockets (and potatoes?) in this exciting physics-based summer camp with plenty of hands-on projects.
Try a little bit of everything that Museum of the Rockies has to offer. Each day we will dabble in a different topic - paleontology, space, history, engineering, and more, featuring the best bits and alternative projects from MOR’s favorite camps.
You do not need to be an artist for MOR’s art-specific summer camp! Projects will be inspired by our exhibits and collections and will include paleo art, sketching, watercolor, photography, and more. We will get creative and put the A in STEAM education
Luck favors the prepared! We will improvise shelter, sanitize water, scavenge food, sample emergency rations, make disaster plans, and learn navigation and first aid skills. You’ll be ready for anything after this camp.
Do you have what it takes to be an astronaut? We’re calling on kids with the “right stuff” to join us on an out-of-this-world adventure, discovering how rockets work and how humans can live in space long term.
Dig into the science of being disgusting. Learn about the human body’s gross, but necessary functions like boogers, barf, and belches. Uncover the nasty world of animals through roaches, mealworms, and other creepy crawlies. Make “interesting” snacks, drinks, and crafts. Things will get gross!
Step back in time at our Living History Farm and Bozeman of the late 1800s. Help around the Tinsley house with gardening, chores, making crafts, and playing the games of pioneer times.
Is it science, pseudoscience, or movie magic? How can you tell if something is real or not? Explore strange topics like UFOs and aliens, Loch Ness monsters, and even look for Sasquatch, all while making a short film about our odd experiences.
What does it take to become a real paleontologist? How do fossils get discovered, prepared, and put on display? We will go through the entire process of paleontology in this camp, “discovering” and preparing a fossil and build a mini-exhibit for display at MOR.
Investigate the wide variety of science about Yellowstone! Meet microbes, plants, animals, and geysers, make Yellowstone-themed crafts, and much more in this camp all about the first National Park.
