Enroll & Access Account

Lodging Options

As with any year, KSS is allowing friend requests within the dorms and Snake River Village. Because these groups are single gender in the dorms and mixed-gender in Snake River Village we are only permitting mixed-gender requests for Snake River Village. We are also working hard to make sure that each group is composed of campers of similar ages. We ask that no friend requests are made if campers are more than 2 years apart in age or grade. See our KSS Campus Map for lodging locations.

 

Snake River Village (SRV) - Rustic Canvas Tents
(Grades 4-6 Only)

If 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 6 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!

Log-Style Dormitories
(Grades 2-8)

Discovery campers have the option of staying in our log cabin-style dormitories, featuring bunk beds, restrooms with showers, and community space. There are two different dormitories both of which are centrally located on our campus. There are four campers per room, and counselors stay in a room off of the community space.
