"Montana Wilderness School is an outdoor education program that runs three-week summer expedition trips of either mountaineering and backpacking or packrafting, canoeing, and backpacking for 16 to18 year olds. All the trips are located in Montana and we are trying to primarily get Montana kids out in Montana wilderness areas, working as a group and learning new skills (including a Wilderness First Aid Certification which is unheard of for students of this age)! We also have a huge scholarship fund that will allow us to give partial or full rides to any student that needs financial help and we also cover most gear and equipment needed for all trips :) We don't want money to be a barrier for anyone who wants to participate in our trips!"
There is a Billings' Parent Information Meeting being held in the Community Room of the Billing's Public Library on Tuesday, May 19, from 6- 7pm.
