MOSS Summer Programs offer FUN, ENGAGING & EDUCATIONAL explorations of the natural world in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. We believe that inspiring a love for nature helps children become aware of—and want to care for—the amazing environment in which we live.
2017 SUMMER PROGRAMS
REGISTRATION FOR 2017 IS NOW OPEN!!
Find the link to Registration below brochure.
To accommodate some of the increasing demand for our summer programs, we added several new sections. Even with these additions we may not be unable to accommodate everyone. Please join a waiting list for a program in which you may be interested - Spots do open up as the summer approaches and those on the wait list are accepted in the order in which they were received
To be put on our email notification list, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
**Please Note: Habitat Hunters July 31-August 4th, and Science and Fly Fishing August 7-11th have been cancelled due to limited enrollment.**

On the first day of a MOSS Summer Program instructors lead students in the creation of expectations for safety and respect, which we foster with encouragement and positive reinforcement. If a student’s behavior presents a concern for their safety or the safety and enjoyment of others, consequences may include removal from all or part of activities or permanent removal from the program. In such a case, unfortunately no refunds are awarded and the student may be precluded from participating in future MOSS experiences.
Cancellations made up to 31 days prior to the program start date will be refunded, minus a $50 administrative fee. Cancellations made 30 days or fewer before the program start date will be subject to retention of the entire program fee. No refunds can be issued for no-shows, withdrawals, or illnesses 30 days prior to or once a program has started. If MOSS cancels a program due to insufficient enrollment or other unavoidable issues, we will do our best to place your child in another program, or a full refund will be given.
