Hodia Wilderness Camp Jul 19 - Jul 23 2017 Backpack Trip

For Hodia campers who seek the thrill of the great outdoors and are ready to respond to the call of the wild, Hodia Wilderness Camp provides an extended adventure into new and exciting territory. The camp will usually consist of a backpacking trip of 5-7 days, but shorter options may be available from year to year.

In 2017 we will have 2 Hodia Wilderness Camp trips including a multi-day whitewater rafting trip (July 5 – 10, 2017) outside of Salmon, and a backpack trip (July 19 – 23, 2017) outside of Stanley. This is the landing page for the Hodia Wilderness Camp Backpack Trip.


Due to forest service restrictions, Hodia Wilderness Camp participation will be limited depending on location.  Campers are eligible if they are between the ages of 15 and 19. Participants and staff will be chosen based upon an application process. We may not be able to accept all applicants due to the trail/camping restrictions and demands of the program. Participants will be given priority based on application date, age, and preparedness and motivation to participate.

Note also that proof of current tetanus immunization is required for participation at Hodia Wilderness Camp (vaccination within 5 years prior to camp).


Since these camps require more limited staff responsibilities than our traditional summer camps and are more of a pleasure camp similar to ski camp, staff are requested to pay the camp fee as well.  Doing so will allow for additional staff participation and help offset the cost for the kids.

Location, Dates  & Fees

The location of camp varies year to year in some of Idaho’s popular wilderness areas. The 2017 backpack trip will enjoy the Walker Lake area. 

The camp fee is $100.
