Mountain Discovery Camp Teen Overnight

August 13, 2019 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

You will hike, camp and explore the forests, streams, and mountain peaks just outside of Boise City. You could spend the night in a survival shelter you’ll construct on your own, explore Shafer Butte as a STEM “ground-truther”, and identify a variety of useful plants. Monday-Wednesday are day expeditions and Thursday evening is the overnight in the Bogus Basin backcountry. Participants will take a bus each day from Fort Boise Community Center or Whitney Community Center to the Nordic Lodge at Bogus Basin. This is a partnership with the Bogus Basin Frontier Point Nordic Lodge & Education Center.

Great for ages 12-15.

This camp is offered Monday-Friday, August 12-16. The fees cover the cost of the entire camp. You only need to register once.
