Scott Brown

Founder and owner of The Basecamp

Billings, Helena

Scott was encouraged to follow his passions while listening to Anthony Burgess give a speech at the University of Montana in 1975. He heeded the words of the famous author and headed off the beaten path to follow his passions. Not soon after, The Base Camp was born, and Scott has never looked back.  


“Our outdoor recreation industries and their economic impact across the state is a huge asset for Montana.  People who live and visit here love to recreate on our open lands, throughout our forests and on our rivers, and I get to provide them with the best clothing, footwear and outdoor gear to make their experience fun, safe, and memorable. Placing real emphasis on our outdoor recreation economy is key for Montana, and for businesses like mine.”
