Montana Natural Resources Youth Camp
Stipends and Sponsorships
How it Works
How it works for all sponsorships, the camper will indicate on their application what sponsorship they are applying for. They must meet the requirements in order to be accepted for the sponsorship. In order to receive the sponsorship he/she must turn in a complete 2020 application, letter of recommendation, with a $150.00 deposit. Once accepted and complete the full 6 days of camp, the deposit or any amount owed to the camper will be refunded within 5 working days after the last day of camp.
Campers are encouraged to contact their local Conservation District for sponsorship, which will cover much of the camp fee. Keep in mind that most Conservation Districts require you to send in your application for sponsorship several months before camp to allow for processing, so don't delay!
Campers need to apply themselves to received the sponsorship.
