Explore, Learn & Discover with RMBL Youth Programs!

Our purpose is to train the next generation of scientists while cultivating respect and wonder for the natural world. RMBL’s nature and science camps take place at our field research station located in Gothic, Colorado and on surrounding public lands. In a beautiful outdoor setting and in the company of career scientists, we provide hands-on investigations of nature. Our programs introduce young people to the practices and processes of science through a variety of fun and interdisciplinary activities. Curiosity and discovery drive the learning adventures that take place each day with RMBL. We hope you’ll join us this summer!
