This year Hodia Wilderness Camp will be a less strenuous hike so that it may be available to a wider audience!
Due to forest service restrictions, Hodia Wilderness Camp participation will be limited depending on location. Participants and volunteer camp 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, preparedness, and motivation to participate.
Volunteer Camp Staff
Since these camps require more limited volunteer camp staff responsibilities than our traditional summer camps and are more of a pleasure camp similar to Winter Camp, volunteer camp staff are requested to pay the camp fee as well. Doing so will allow for additional volunteer camp 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.
During campfire, campers are treated to songs, old and new, and have the opportunity to unwind from their busy day. Many years, we have storytime at campfire!
The best way to see Idaho’s most beautiful back country is to hike into it! This multi-day backpack trip is challenging. We pack all of our own gear and work together to have a safe and really sweet experience, all while learning how to balance our diabetes care with strenuous exercise in remote places.
Participants have the opportunity to fish in some of the most beautiful high mountain lakes and streams!
Subsidized Camp Fee
This fee is for families in our service area: Idaho, Eastern Oregon and Western Wyoming. Generous supporters make this subsidy possible, and we are so grateful for each of those donors.*
Full Camp Fee
The true cost of camp. This is the fee for campers outside of our service area and for those who can pay the fee. Selecting this option allows us to spend donated funds on subsidy and/or campership of families with true financial need.
Thanks to many generous donors, Hodia has never turned a child away for financial reasons. Simply sign-up for camp and complete the Campership Application. Camperships are based on financial need. If you have an extenuating financial situation and need a full campership, or need accommodations to pay the registration fee, please call us.
