Mission Statement

The Montana Learning Center at Canyon Ferry Lake provides and promotes quality immersion experiences for all in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) in a unique lakeside environment.

Dear Friend of the MLC,

Summer is here and soon the Montana Learning Center will be filled with energetic, curious and excited children. Knowledgeable instructors are looking forward to engaging students in creative and educational activities. The center’s cabins and classrooms are ready too for the season ahead.

The unique lakeside environment of Montana Learning Center (MLC) is a great location for most learning activities. However, many immersion experiences planned for this summer take place away from camp. Field trips to mine for crystals or to hike to a limestone canyon loaded with fossils require reliable transportation. 

Traveling with our students takes them to more than a place. It transports them to a new way of thinking. It gives them a chance to walk in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark or to tour an aerospace facility.

Your past support and involvement with MLC is much appreciated. Your help is needed now to cover the cost of two new vans. The approach that’s been taken for many years—repairing aging vehicles—is no longer practical. It’s time to purchase new vehicles. Dependable transportation is most important for our youngest campers from grades 1 - 3. Getting these kids to camp requires four trips a day for five weeks from Helena to MLC. 

Please make a contribution today either in the enclosed envelope or online at our website above. Your support will give the 250+ campers we expect this summer memories to cherish the rest of their lives.
