These high adventure activities are fun but require additional packing items for safety. Hiking and rappelling require hiking shoes/boots with significant tread to grip on steep slopes and loose rocks. Please don’t plan to use your normal everyday tennis shoes for these activities. Whitewater rafting requires closed-toe water shoes. No one may be barefoot on the raft trip.

Each cabin group has at least 2 dedicated staff including a cabin counselor and licensed healthcare provider. These cabins function as a “mini camp” and do all their activities in common.  They often join additional cabin groups or the entire camp for joint activities.

Parents and family members are allowed during drop-off and pick-up times only. The primary reason for this is safety for all the campers. We are in the process of updating procedures for medical interviews, drop-off and pick-up processes. Registered campers and camp staff will be notified as updates are available.

You may bring your phone to camp to listen to music while going to sleep, for your continuous glucose monitor (cgm), and for photos.  Occasionally, a quick check-in during the week is briefly allowed but it is primarily a non-electronic camp.

Hodia Wilderness Camp

While we are expecting no emergencies while at camp, we will take every precaution necessary. All staff will have basic medical training and have passed a rigorous screening process by the Camp Director and Idaho Diabetes Youth Programs. The staff will include at least one physician with extensive back-country training. The Forest Service, nearby hospital, and police know about our program and where we are located during the week.

Registered participants and camp staff will receive an update on this prior to camp.
