Oncology Camps (Big Sky Kids)

Laugh, move, play, explore: get the chance to be a kid.

To be a Big Sky Kid at Eagle Mount is to experience the incredible wonders of Montana’s outdoors, even as you face the challenges cancer has brought into your life. Big Sky Kids empowers participants to escape the confines of treatment schedules and hospital walls and experience all the thrills that our state has to offer!

Through this program, children and young adults aged 5 to 23, along with their families, can attend medically supervised camps that promote strength, wellness, fun, and freedom in an inspiring natural landscape. You’ll make new friends and memories, and forge meaningful connections that bring deep emotional support both during and after your camp experience.

Begun in 1985, Big Sky Kids serves young people with cancer from Montana and all over the U.S. We provide four different oncology summer camps, as well as a family ski weekend every spring. Our camps are centered around exciting Montana adventures such as white-water rafting, horseback riding, kayaking, fishing, zip-lining, and touring the wonders of Yellowstone National Park.

Even with the unpredictability of the last year, we are as committed as ever to providing adventure, fun, and community to our campers and their families. The great thing about the magic of camp is that it exists in the hearts, words, and deeds of the campers and staff who live it; those things are not tied to any geographic location.

As we enter a new year and prepare for the upcoming summer, we will continue to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 carefully. The safety and health of our campers, families, and volunteers are our top priority. Because of this, we have moved some camps to be virtual, and we are waiting to make decisions until we know more.
