The Trapper Creek Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center is located in the rugged Bitterroot National Forest in western Montana. Built as a Civilian Conservation Corps camp in the 1930s, and officially opened as a Job Corps center in 1966, the center sits on 55 acres near Darby, Montana, a rural area at the foot of the Bitterroot Mountains.
Trapper Creek was originally a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp set up during the 1930s. During President Lyndon B. Johnson's administration, many former CCC sites became Job Corps centers. As such, Trapper Creek opened as a Job Corps center in January 1966. Our center was for males only until 1980 when it became a coed facility.
Our campus' residential living facilities can house 161 male students in three dorms and 56 female students in one dorm. Residential students live with one roommate and enjoy the following amenities:
- laundry facilities
- TV lounges
- quiet rooms
- computers for student use
- disability accessible bathroom
- bathrooms and showers
Students stay in separate male and female dormitories. There are two students in each dorm room. Your room will be assigned to you upon arrival at the center.
Job Corps values diversity and will provide you with opportunities to live and interact with people of many different backgrounds.
