Camp Activities

Child holding art.


A fun hands-on approach inspires young minds to take an active role that stimulates learning and addresses the developmental needs of children.

Girls with craft supplies.

Arts & Crafts

Kids will spend time exercising the right side of their brains at camp! From bracelets, trinkets, and sculptures, our kids discover artistic talents, which some continue to pursue long after camp is over.

During campfire, campers are treated to songs old and new and have the opportunity to unwind from their busy day.

Some of the nation’s most spectacular hiking trails are in our backyard! Hodia campers of every skill level get the opportunity to explore the Sawtooth Mountains including hikes to high mountain lakes.

Horseback Riding

Campers have the opportunity to explore from the back of a horse! This may be the start of a career in horse wrangling!

Camp Fees - Starry Skies

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.
