Intro to Discovery Camp

Introduction to Discovery Camp is a program specifically designed for some our newest campers, ages 5-12 years of age. The program is a shortened and condensed version of Discovery Camp. Each day is different and all activities are tailored to our youngest campers who may have never gone to an overnight camp program. Activities will include songs and skits by the campfire, a day hike, camper choice activities such as arts and crafts, archery, and reading time in our meadow. If your child has never been to camp before this is a great first experience.

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 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.
