Child & Pet Care

Child Care

There is no meeting sponsored childcare, and the childcare facility for students on campus does not do short term care.  However there are a couple of drop in programs in town that you can use.

Busy Hands

Missoula, MT 59801

Lil Griz Cubhouse

Dog care – Both the Holiday Inn (Missoula Downtown) and the Doubletree by Hilton (Edgewater) are pet friendly.  If you are bringing your furry friend to the meeting here is an option for doggie day care.

Alpine Canine is committed to the health and happiness of Missoula’s best friends. Much more than a unique alternative to doggy daycare, we offer full service boarding, daycare and our signature hiking adventure that stimulates dogs mentally and physically—all in a safe environment where they can play and socialize.

Alpine Canine offers daycare, boarding, day hikes on their 72-acre fully enclosed property (4 miles of groomed trails), and more.
