Are you interested in School's Out & PIR Programs for your 6-8 grade students?
Look for details soon.
We are partnering with Montana State University's Extended University to offer several outdoor science skills classes for adults. These hands-on courses are designed for adults who enjoy outdoor activities and want to improve their outdoor science knowledge.
Classes take place Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 on the MSU campus. Field days are on Saturdays, locations to be announced!
Thank you for joining us!
We are outside...
In the spirit of adventure, excitement, and curiosity, MOSS summer camps give your child the opportunity to play and learn outdoors! MOSS camps are facilitated by experienced and excited leaders who excel at stimulating children’s natural curiosity. We believe that fostering a love for nature helps kids become aware of and care for the amazing environment in which we live.

Since 2010, Executive Director Steve Eshbaugh has led MOSS with dedication, vast knowledge, and a fantastic sense of humor. Together with staff, volunteers, partners and donors, Steve helped Montana Outdoor Science School more than double the number of camps offered and more than triple our time in local schools. Steve recently decided that it is time for a new challenge, and celebrated his last formal day with MOSS on June 19th.
Steve chose a good time for a leadership transition at MOSS: our summer program staff is experienced and full of energy, our board is strong, and a recent strategic retreat gave both staff and board a chance to consider the opportunities that lie ahead. I am confident that the next two decades at MOSS will build from the incredible skill and passion of all who have served this important organization.
An executive search is underway. During the transition, Kate Burnaby Wright has stepped off the board to serve as Interim Director. I encourage you to contact her, or anyone from our staff or board, if you have questions.
With deep thanks to Steve and our entire MOSS community,
Thank you for your support!
Board President, MOSS
