Children learning about mammal research with a biologist

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!

In order to keep students, scientists, and staff healthy in light of COVID-19, for Summer 2022, all participants in RMBL programs will be required to follow the RMBL COVID-19 health and safety plan, which will include proof of vaccination, and may include mask-wearing, hand-washing, personal distancing, and group size limits. Vaccine exemptions will be considered, as required by law. 

We are excited about this summer, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
