Big Hole National Battlefield

Coyote Camp

Coyote Camp is Big Hole's premier education program for school groups. During this fun, interactive, educational experience students rotate through activity stations on the battlefield and with various cultural demonstrators. Coyote Camp is offered during one week only in late May. Each school group reserves a one day slot from 10am to 3pm. Schools who want to get the highest quality educational experience out of their visit are encouraged to attend Coyote Camp as opposed to scheduling programming on other dates.

2018 Coyote Camp dates and other information will be announced in early 2018. Please stay tuned!

 

Reservations for Other Education Programming at the Battlefield

Schools who want to get the highest quality educational experience out of their visit are encouraged to attend Coyote Camp as opposed to scheduling a tour on other dates.
