Frontier Skills at Logging Camp

Archery | Hatchet Throwing | Crosscut Sawing & Branding | Fire Building | Slingshot

Our treasured corner of Montana was literally put on the map over 200 years ago when Lewis & Clark forged their way up and over Lost Trail Pass and through our valley. Adding to a rich history of indigenous people who made this wilderness their home, homesteaders soon began to settle and a vigorous logging tradition was established to supply the burgeoning mineral industry with timber for mine frames and smelters. It took some fortitude and a unique set of skills to thrive in this frontier – here is a chance for you to see how you might have fared! Spend a little time at the Logging Camp connecting with your inner lumberjack!

Hour-long Logging Camp sessions are available daily. Please arrange your session with an Activity Coordinator.

Spring, Summer, and Fall activities include; Archery, Hatchet Throwing, Crosscut Sawing & Fire Branding, Firebuilding, and Slingshot

Hatchet Throwing

It’s the latest craze – channel your inner-lumberjack and satisfy the primal urge to throw sharp objects! State of the art hatchets and a big sky with plenty of elbow room deliver an unanticipated thrill!

Crosscut Sawing & Fire Branding

Before chainsaws were motorized, it took a lot of elbow grease to saw down a tree across the grain. Flex your frontier muscles with traditional tools as you work up a little sweat cross cutting your own piece of Montana timber to bring home. Round out your lumberjacking experience by fire branding your wood piece with a TCR brand.
