What Is Singing Waters Montana?

Singing Waters Montana is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit established for the sole purpose of obtaining the facilities at Mimangish and managing it as an Organizational Camp, for a diverse range of users seeking a special, sacred place to offer transformational programming.

Our Purpose:

Singing Waters Montana is a new non-profit organization formed by people who have been campers, counselors and staff at Mimanagish, who want to give it new life by hosting transformative events. We aspire to be the vessel for experiences provided by a wide variety of groups and people.   We are “The Camp for Those Who Don’t Have a Camp.”

Our Vision: 

  • Nurturing transformation, acceptance and joy in a sacred wilderness environment. 

Our Mission:

  • To gratefully steward the land and singing waters with respect and care.
  • To provide a wide welcome to all.
  • To offer opportunities to: foster relationships, nourish mind, body & spirit, unplug from distraction inviting solace & creativity, build a beloved community that values justice, equality, & love.

More about us…

Singing Waters Montana seeks to provide unique, transformative experiences for people away from the hustle and bustle of their everyday lives. We will provide warm hospitality to people and organizations seeking a welcoming and beautiful place to temporarily retreat from computer and TV screens, from ever-present cell phone alerts, from social media and from the 24-hour-news cycle. We will provide quiet, solace in nature, and the spaciousness required to relax, find restoration, and enjoy programming that nourishes the spirit and builds deep community.  Our wilderness sanctuary offers a clean slate where program leaders can set free their imaginations and design opportunities and activities that encourage participants to explore their spiritual connections to creation and to one another; where people can engage in painting, writing, playing music; where they can meditate and learn yoga; where they can fish, hike and play games outdoors; where they can explore their connection to the natural world, learn about plant and animal life, and become better stewards of the land.
