When not out on trips, students will live in the “dorms” at camp. Housing is divided by guys and gals, each having a shared community restroom with sinks, toilets, and showers. Rooms are accommodated with bunks, drawers, and a coat rack. Students will need to provide their own bedding.
Three tasty meals a day are provided by our kitchen staff as the entire student body and Bighorn community come together to share in food and fellowship. Meals are buffet style and specialty food needs can be accommodated in coordination with the kitchen manager.
The Lodge is the hub of camp life. It provides a welcoming environment for meals and time in community. Students often use the lodge for homework, games, studying; all or which can be done around the fire! The upstairs of the lodge is also used as one of our main classroom spaces.
While on campus, students often use their free time to enjoy each other’s company. They play games in the lodge, play sports like soccer or ultimate frisbee in the field, go hiking, hang out on the couches around the fire, play music, find a chance to go out rock climbing, and many other things. If you have a vehicle, the small town of Plains is 12 miles away. The larger city of Missoula is 72 miles away. Often, we will carpool to movies, ice cream, and shopping. High speed Internet is available and cell service is best with Verizon.
