For more information check out the FAQ below, read the info and safety sheet, or contact Schweitzer's Activity Center at 208.255.3081.
What is a week at camp like?
Each week, campers can look forward to climbing the rock wall twice, the trampoline jumper twice, ride the lift at least twice, hiking, village games, a trip to the Cranky Jennings Sluice Box, swimming every day, a hot dog roast on Fridays and much more!
Is there transportation?
Yes! We will pick you up in a small Schweitzer bus at the Schweitzer Park and Ride at the base of the mountain at 8am and bring you back at 4pm.
What if I don’t know anybody there?
Everyone makes fast friends at Schweitzer Camp! You’ll have fun making new friends or you can always invite a friend to join you at camp!
Are all the kids together all day?
Most of the time, all the campers stay together. However, depending on activities we may divide into 2 groups; for example, if we are going on a hike one group may go on a long hike and one group may go on a shorter hike. One group may decide to make a craft and the other rides the chairlift. (You will make the choice which group you go with.)
What if I don’t know how to swim?
The pool complex has hot tubs and a shallow end you may enjoy. The pool is an hour glass shape with one side being shallow. Campers are only allowed in the deep end once they demonstrate adequate swimming skills. You can also bring a life vest if you want to. Swimming lessons will not be provided.
How many kids will be there?
Usually there are 20 kids at camp and 3 leaders.
What if it rains?
Rain can happen, but there’s still plenty to do if it does! We won’t let it ruin our day. We may still go outside or we may choose to do indoor activities.
What about my safety?
Safety of campers is our number one priority! Specific protocol has been outlined for many situations including chairlift rides, swimming pool, and hiking. Camp counselors are certified in Red Cross first aid and CPR, and are also educated in basic pool safety. Specifics are outlined upon registration confirmation.
