Overview

Montana Spring Roundup program provides students with an educational and professional leg up as well as a fun and fulfilling alternative to virtual classrooms. Based on a historic, 80-acre ranch, participants will volunteer with organic farmers, earn a Wilderness First Responder certification and dig deep into sustainability issues.

From snow-covered mountaintops to vast river corridors and glaciated plains, discover a big sky view of the breathtaking Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Look at the landscape through the lens of an ecologist, exploring the connections between land, wildlife, civilization and climate. Explore the Rocky Mountain backcountry by way of foot, ski and sled, and learn about land elements, sustainability and renewable resources. Live at a historic ranch in the foothills of the Bridger Mountains and volunteer with local food producers who depend on natural resources for their livelihood. Explore newfound interests, deepen your skillset in pragmatic hands-on life skills, and build an ethic of stewardship. Be an important member of an inclusive community and forge new paths together for a sustainable world all with the spirit of humor, cooperation and reflection.

My son attended this program in Fall 2020. He had a great time, made new friends, and came home happier and healthier than he had been all year. It was the perfect alternative to starting college in the middle of a pandemic and it enabled him to 're-boot' after an isolated and sedentary spring/summer. For 2 months, he enjoyed a constant stream of interesting, perspective-broadening experiences in a stunningly beautiful part of the country as well as the type of social connections that we normally associate with college life. He really liked the other students, who were from a variety backgrounds and areas of the country, and he really liked the group leaders, who connected well with participants. He came home refreshed and energized, ready to make the most of the rest of his gap year. Plus, I was extremely pleased with the professionalism of the staff and with the thoroughness of their pandemic precautions. As COVID cases started climbing across the country, it was reassuring to know that he was with this high-quality, well-run program. I highly recommend Visions; it was totally worth it and I’m so happy that he got to have this experience.
