Snow King Mountain Resort, Jackson Hole
With our team of proven experts in the camping industry, the program will be unlike anything your campers have done before. Hike, learn target sports, sing songs, do arts and crafts, participate in a Color War and much more! For K – 8th graders, our program will delight the imagination and offer memories that will last a lifetime.
For parents, if you did not experience day camp, you might believe it to be a fun way to provide daycare for your child in the summer. However, great day camps are so much more. They are places where our campers will grow and test their boundaries. They will express their creativity and make new friends.

Counselor in Training Program
Join our Counselor in Training program and learn the skills needed to become an incredible camp counselor! Help lead our young campers to become great community members – teach them team-building skills and sportsmanship, play games like Gaga, and instruct them through their arts & crafts projects.
This position requires candidates who are responsible, coachable, and have enthusiasm and fun energy all day long. All 6th-8th graders (2021/22 school year) are invited to apply for the Counselor in Training program at Base Camp!
For each week of Base Camp, there will be ten Counselors In Training. The C.I.T. Program will run during the normal camp hours of 9am – 4pm. Counselors in Training will go through a Base Camp orientation every Monday and will then be assigned to specific Houses and activities for the rest of the week. Come learn what it takes to be a great camp counselor at Base Camp!
Right after you drop-off your camper at Base Camp we will come together and get warmed up for the day. With songs, skits and dances there is no better way to get ready for the day. We will then break into our Houses and begin our morning activities! Your camper will participate in 1 – 3 activities each morning prior to lunch. Arts and crafts, hikes, ropes course, field games, wilderness skills and more, our mornings are jam packed! After lunch we will break into our theme game time! Every week has a theme and so each day we play a camp-wide game based around that week’s theme. After our theme time we head right into our afternoon activities! A rotating afternoon schedule throughout the week allows every camper to participate in each activity. Before we know, it’s after 3pm! Time to wrap up the day! During this time we sing camp songs, eat a snack, and dance the afternoon away until it is time to be picked up. As your campers leave they are already thinking and dreaming about the next camp day to come.
[My son] grew SO much in so many ways that I was honestly not expecting. His confidence grew, his relationship skills grew, his willingness to try new things grew. I really don't know how to express what a positive change that you and your counselors made for my little boy.

Wow! Finally a day camp with heart! My kids ages, 10 and 11 had a ball. The counselors were beyond fun and kids loved ALL the choices for outdoor activities without all the waiting. Gaga ball, camp songs and ropes course were favorites. Feels good to send the boys to a camp that is a GRAND leap beyond the usual day camp experience.

Best camp for kids in Jackson Hole! Staff is energetic and always have a smile. The activities are a great mix of traditional camp and Jackson Hole Specific like the Tree Top ropes course.
