MSUB’s Kids on Campus, I THINK Camps, and the Young Scholars Summer Series are fun, safe, educational ways for youth and young adults to spend the summer months.


Why choose a summer youth program for your child?  Here are just a few reasons:

  • Programs take place on MSUB main campus, MSUB Extended Campus (downtown), or at City College, so students experience what it’s like to be on a college campus.
  • All of our summer programs are taught by K-12 educators or MSUB faculty members.  They are highly qualified, professional educators who are experts in their fields.
  • Each program is geared toward specific ages that are educationally relevant; they are academics-based, but fun, so your children continue learning throughout the summer. 

Cancellations, Transfers, and Refunds

In the event that a summer program does not meet the minimum number of participants, it will be cancelled and parents will be called at least 5 (five) days prior to the start of the camp. In the event a camp is cancelled, a full refund will be given or the fee can be transferred to pay for a different camp. We purchase supplies and hire staff according to enrollment, so if you must cancel your child’s registration, you will receive a full refund if it is cancelled 5 (five) business days prior to the starting date of a summer camp. After this date there will be no refunds.  Cancellations must be called in and cannot be emailed. 


Scholarship Fund

We will have a scholarship fund again this year.  Applications are due no later than May 27, 2016. To learn more and for an application, go here.


MSUB Extended Campus is pleased to offer scholarships for youth interested in attending summer programs. The summer scholarship program is available to students who can demonstrate financial need. It was established to assist young people with the desire to attend a summer camp at the University but whose families have limited financial resources.


Scholarships are for 70% of the camp tuition. Students are limited to one scholarship per summer. Students who are given scholarships, but do not attend their summer camp will be ineligible for future summer camp scholarships. If you are interested in donating to this Fund, please call Laura at 406-896-5882 or email l.gittingscarlson@msubillings.edu. Your gift is tax deductible.
