Lodging Options

Snake River Village - Rustic Canvas Tents

Get a unique camp experience and stay in one of our authentic canvas wall tents, adjacent to the beautiful Snake River. Our tents are on raised, wooden platforms and each camper gets a cot and room to store their equipment. The tents are a short walk from bathrooms, showers, and have their very own campfire pit. 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.

Log-Style Dormitories

Residential campers will stay in one of our log-style dormitories, featuring bunk beds, restrooms with showers, and a community space. There are two dormitories, Bighorn Dorm and the Henry Dorm. Both dorms are located right in the center of campus near Rives Dining Hall. Each room sleeps four campers and there are eight rooms in each dorm. Counselors stay in a room off of the community space. Rooms are assigned based on age and grade. We will do our best to accommodate up to two roommate requests per session, but we cannot guarantee roommates.
