Lodging Options

Snake River Village (SRV) - Rustic Canvas Tents

If sleeping under the stars and falling asleep to the calming sounds of the Snake River sounds like summer camp to you, then look no further than Snake River Village. In Snake River Village campers sleep in canvas wall tents, each with 4 beds, adjacent to the beautiful Snake River. Our tents are on raised wooden platforms and each camper gets a cot and room to store their belongings. The tents are a short walk from the bathrooms, showers, and dining hall. They even have their very own campfire pit!
