Get a unique camp experience and stay in one of our authentic canvas wall tents, adjacent to the beautiful Snake River.

Each tent sleeps five campers and one Counselor Assistant. Two counselors sleep in a tent in the center of each tent village. Campers of any age can choose this option. This is a great opportunity to guarantee that siblings, family members, and good friends can be together in a tent and trail group. Availability is limited – register early! Choose this option during registration.
