Where is Missoula, Montana?

Remote as it may sound, this bustling college town is actually quite accessible. Its international airport — MSO — has direct, daily connections from a variety of major airports via United, Delta, American, Horizon/Alaska Air and Allegiant airlines. Since travel to Montana can be somewhat limited and/or expensive, we suggest campers book their flights soon after their acceptance notices and the confirmation packets have been received.

Driving Directions

From Interstate 90, when you arrive at Gold Creek take exit 166 and head south across the Clark Fork River. Continue approximately half a mile until you see the small white church on your right. Turn right at the church, pass under the 6C Ranches sign, then turn left and drive up the hill, passing under the Camp Mak-A-Dream sign.

At the top of the hill you will see our parking lot on your left. Please park vehicles in the parking lot and walk across the wooden foot bridge where you will find the Main Lodge and all other buildings.

Travel Scholarships

We offer a limited number of full and partial scholarships for eligible first-time participants to help with the cost of travel. Learn more and download an application by visiting the APPLY PAGE of this website, or calling us at 406.549.5987. Completed scholarship application forms must be submitted at least 30 days prior to participants’ anticipated travel date(s).


I feel like I had a connection to everyone, they're genuinely nice ... [Camp] is not like anywhere else.

From the outside looking in summer may seem like our busy season, but Camp Mak-A-Dream works its magic year-round. From special projects in preparation for our major fundraising events to hosting educational workshops at our Gold Creek campus, we stay busy regardless of the temperature outside. It just happens to be summertime that we especially look forward to.
