    2017 MSU Billings Summer Programs for Youth

     View all Kids on Campus Camps

    Kids on CampusStudents entering the 4th through 9th grade

    I THINK Camps: Independent thinkers in 2nd through 9th grades

    MSUB’s Kids on Campus and I THINK Camps are fun, safe, educational ways for youth to spend the summer months.

    Why choose a summer youth program for your child?  Here are just a few reasons:

    • Programs take place on MSUB main campus, MSUB Extended Campus (downtown), or at City College, so students experience what it’s like to be on a college campus.
    • All of our summer programs are taught by K-12 educators or MSUB faculty members.  They are highly qualified, professional educators who are experts in their fields.
    • Each program is geared toward specific ages that are educationally relevant; they are academics-based, but fun, so your children continue learning throughout the summer.

    Scholarship Fund

    We will have a scholarship fund again this year.  Applications are due no later than May 22, 2017. To learn more and for an application, go here.

    MSUB Extended Campus is pleased to offer scholarships for youth interested in attending summer programs. The summer scholarship program is available to students who can demonstrate financial need. It was established to assist young people with the desire to attend a summer camp at the University but whose families have limited financial resources.

    Scholarships are for up to 70% of the camp tuition. Students are limited to one scholarship per summer. Students who are given scholarships, but do not attend their summer camp will be ineligible for future summer camp scholarships. If you are interested in donating to this Fund, please call Laura at 406-896-5882 or email l.gittingscarlson@msubillings.edu. Your gift is tax deductible.
