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.Eagle Mount Bozeman is committed to providing quality therapeutic recreational opportunities for people with disabilities and young people with cancer and to provide support for families of participants so “they shall mount up with wings as eagles.”
Since 1982, Eagle Mount has been transforming the lives of people with disabilities and children with cancer. Eagle Mount opens up a world of adventures – skiing, horseback riding, swimming, camping, rock climbing, kayaking, cycling, fishing, and more – that foster freedom, joy, strength, focus, and confidence. Set under the beauty of Montana’s legendary Big Sky, Eagle Mount focuses on people’s abilities, while gently supporting their disabilities.
