Summer Programs

Spend a week of your summer exploring the rivers, lakes and mountains of the northern Rocky Mountains that surround stunning McCall, Idaho. We offer residential Summer Field Science Expeditions for Middle and High School students as well as fun, adventure filled day camps for younger students.

Summer Field Science Expeditions

What better way to spend a summer week than canoing Payette Lake, rafting the mighty Salmon River, or backpacking the Northern Rockies? Mix in some field science, making new friends, and awesome graduate student field instructors and you have the perfect recipe for a MOSS Summer Field Science Expedition. These programs are designed for motivated 7th-12th grade students interested in science and the great Idaho outdoors. You will work alongside university faculty researchers to better understand water resources in a changing climate while sharpening your analytical and critical thinking skills as you design your own science inquiry project. Programs are available for organized youth groups or individuals. Choose from the female focused Women Outdoors with Science program or the very spatial Get Into Science (GIS) program.
