5th Grade Outdoor Adventure Program
Over the course of 3 days and two nights students from local 5th grade schools come to Idaho BaseCamp for an outdoor adventure education. From morning mindfulness in our Borah Basin Building, to shelter building, to fire starting, to team building games, to STEAM aligned curriculum in the outdoor classroom these students are immersed in the outdoors. The goal is to create a strong connection with our surrounding wilderness and to go home with a greater sense of our core values: Personal Responsibility, Courage & Respect for ALL.

Outdoor Adventure Teen Leadership Program
Idaho BaseCamp will host ten 15 – 18 year old teenagers mainly from the inner cities of San Francisco, CA., Tacoma, WA. and other western cities. This will be an eight-day and seven-night outdoor adventure service-learning program. They will experience rock climbing, whitewater rafting, fly-fishing and sleeping in tents. Poised with 20 years of adventure leadership experience, this program is set to push the participants’ comfort level, provide them with tools to communicate their feelings and gain skills to become the 21st century leaders we need in our society. Students will have a 9 month follow up program that consists of calls every 6 weeks to keep the leadership tools fresh and relevant.

Women's Summer Retreat
At Idaho Basecamp
How it works: We will look to create a collaboration of creativity and offerings from attending women.
We will begin with a skeleton schedule of the weekend flow. If you have a gift that suits a certain time slot email email@example.com to sign up for it. I invite you to get creative with where your offering fits in, let us see the beauty of the unfolding as people bring their gifts to the table. We will ask that each woman take at least one shift preparing a meal and one shift cleaning up a meal. Some of us need to come and fully receive, some of us have something we’d like to share - tend to what YOU need and trust that the rest will fall delicately into place.
**Examples of offerings that were brought to the winter retreat were: Wild Art, Chakra Meditation, Archetypes and Courageous Conversation, Feng Shui for the Heart, and Photo Empowerment**
Mountain Adventure Tours
There's a reason our most popular program, Mountain Adventure Tours (M.A.T.) has been running for 21 years. It is the leading summer camp in Idaho for outdoor adventure education.
Modeled on the idea of Enviro-tainment: teaching kids important values and life skills through the use of entertaining activities within our environment, wilderness and community.
