Moments of Adventure
Outdoor Adventure at Carroll
One look, and you’ll see it. A rugged kind of beauty, overflowing with opportunity, that only a campus and a Montana setting like ours can deliver. Every day here brings the promise of a new challenge. It’s a boundless experience that will challenge and inspire you in ways you simply won’t find anywhere else.
The Rocky Mountains. The Missouri River. Lewis and Clark National Forest. The Continental Divide Trail. More than 75 miles of hiking and biking trails just minutes from campus. At Carroll, you’ll have access to some of the most pristine and opportunity-rich areas the world has to offer—right outside your door. Not to mention Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park, just a few hours from campus.
Skiing, snowboarding, whitewater rafting, fly fishing, rock climbing, mountain biking—pick just about any outdoor sport and our students enjoy it. The Carroll Adventure and Mountaineering Program (C.A.M.P.) offers students a huge range of opportunities for outdoor fun—weekly outings around Helena and longer trips just a few hours away to Glacier and Yellowstone national parks.
Helena is a great place to explore and Carroll is a quick walk from miles of trails. I’ve built so many friendships on the trails and it’s nice to be able to get up in the hills without going too far out of town. After a hard test I like to go for a mountain bike ride or a trail run to decompress. “And I’m so grateful for the chance to stay engaged in my faith at Carroll. I look forward to going to COR, the men’s formation group, every week to hang out with my friends and talk about our faith. -Baird Linke
