Boys of the Moonshell Adventure Camp

Summer 2017

July 10th - 14th

at The Poudre Learning Center

Why have a Boys Adventure Camp? 

Boys of the Moonshell will allow young men to explore nature and the world of being a scientist. Opportunities exist for these young men to develop leadership skills, meet new friends and develop scientific questions of the river. Local teachers have been hand-picked to make science activities fun, engaging and a lasting memory. Sutdents will go into the school year with this experience to share with their friends and provide real-world context for the science studies ahead. Middle school boys gather for a week-long science experience based around adventure, art, exploration and natural history.

Who can apply?

Boys who will be in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade during the 2016-2017 school year are eligible to apply. The program is limited to 30 participants. 

Does it cost anything? 

Yes, the program does cost some money - $150. We have scholarships (up to $150) available for boys whose families need financial assistance to pay but would like to participate. A $25 deposit is required at the time of your application. Be sure to fill out the 'Scholarship Page' as part of your application.
