Help Support Learning at the Lake

“The weeks I spent at science camp were a rare opportunity to explore a topic deeply with expert staff to offer mentorship. Learning to think scientifically with nature surrounding us was incredibly special.” - Julie S., former camper


Dear Friend of the Montana Learning Center,

You know how crucial it is to educate and prepare the next generation of America’s workforce whether you are a former camper like Julie or have never had a chance to see our science camps in action.

Your generosity makes a difference. It gives kids an opportunity to become scientifically literate through Montana Learning Center’s summer camps. You also provide teachers new ways to utilize the power of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM), through teacher-training programs that strengthen education across Montana. 

Because of Montana Learning Center’s supporters, 190, a record number of kids participated in our summer learning camps in 2016. Many of our campers would not be able to attend without scholarship support. It takes $500 to send a child to camp. That is not a small number, but it makes a big difference with the kids we serve.

Your contribution makes it possible for us to teach hundreds of kids across Montana. Please help and make a gift today. Donors to Montana Learning Center nurture the inner scientist in our young people—tomorrow’s innovators and leaders. 

Thank you for giving to or being part of Montana Learning Center in the past. We could not continue this important work without you.


Ryan Hannahoe
Executive Director

P.S.  Your donation assures Montana’s kids are on a pathway to successful careers and a brighter future.
