Our Schedule

A TYPICAL DAY AT BASE CAMP

A typical day at Base Camp is filled with adventure, fun activities, songs, and games. While each day differs slightly depending on which House you are in, we begin every morning at the base of Snow King where we gather as a group to welcome everyone to Base Camp. After some songs and games we break into our Houses for the remainder of the day, moving from activity to activity, including our “Campers Choice” activity. The activities each camper will participate in are hiking, arts and crafts, field games, and adrenaline-filled activities like the bouldering wall, the Flying Squirrel, and more!

We believe in empowering our students to choose the activities they want to participate in. There are five choice activities to choose from, each lasting one week. These activities are focused arts, target sports (such as archery and slingshots), nature science, songs/theater (with a performance at the end of each week!), and mountain life, including bouldering, fishing/casting, cooking, and camping skills.

A TYPICAL WEEK AT BASE CAMP

A typical week at Base Camp includes our daily activities, as well as themed activities every day based on that week’s specific theme. Every Friday afternoon the whole family gathers at Snow King as we celebrate our week together with camper awards and performances.


The Details

Base Camp runs from 9:00am – 3:30pm. Before and Aftercare is available if your schedule does not quite fit with our regular hours. From 8:30am – 9:00am and 3:30pm – 5:00pm, your child will be under the same superior care and guidance from our Base Camp counselors and staff.

Field Days

This summer we are adding field days to our program! One day a week, Larkspur and Sage campers will leave camp and embark on a Base Camp field day to local areas. Field day activities may include day hikes within Grand Teton National Park, visits to local sights including the Fish Hatchery, Rendezvous Park, South Park Feed grounds, a wildlife safari through the Elk Refuge and more! Field days will vary depending on that week’s theme.


The Ultimate Summer

The Ultimate Summer: If your child is entering the 6th grade, you have the unique opportunity to take advantage of our Ultimate Summer! By participating in only (but not limited to) one week of Base Camp, you will receive 10% off one our Wilderness Adventures Discovery Adventures for that same year!

These trips provide the perfect launch pad to confident outdoor adventuring for years to come!
