"Montana Hybrid Academy's bushcraft days are my son's favorite day every week. He has gained confidence in skills that we could never have taught him. Now he is teaching us, and it is incredible! "

"My daughter's week in the woods with Montana Hybrid Academy was not only an amazing learning experience for her, but it has been wonderful for her to make friendships with other kids that want to be outside and not on a device all day."

Our kids just had a fantastic week in the woods with MHA. I can't recommend this program enough. 

They learned how to navigate, make shelters, purify water, and much more. Our kids came home confident, happy, and dirty!
