We refer to grades as what grade your child will be entering into the upcoming fall. Please make sure your child's birthdate and grade information is correct when registering.

For our weekly youth programming, we offer an optional add-on of horseback riding with Mystic Saddle Ranch. A half day (1.5 hours) is $50 for grades 4-8, or a full day is $110 for grades 9 -12. A full day is about 4-5 hours of riding, plus lunch out on the trails.

Horseback riding is also available for our Family and Grand Camps as an add-on, and both half and full day options are available. Children 6 and older are welcome to ride accompanied by their guardian.

We will not be offering horseback riding as an add-on activity for 2021 programming. If you’d like to schedule a ride on your own for after camp, Mystic Saddle Ranch can be reached at 208-774-3311.

We partner with Sawtooth Adventure Company to offer white water rafting to our Senior High youth programming (grades 9-12), as well as our Family and Grand Camps. This is an add-on program for $70, which includes about four hours of rafting and lunch on the shores of the river. For Family and Grand Camp, participants must be at least 6 years old to participate.

We will not be offering white water rafting as an add-on activity for 2021 programming. If you’d like to schedule a trip of your own for after camp, Sawtooth Adventure Company can be reached at 208-774-4644.

There is no cell reception at camp, and we do not have wi-fi available. This allows all our campers – kids and adults alike – to disconnect for the week without any temptations to "check in." Our counselors are fully focused on their campers and campers are not distracted with devices. If you bring your phone, we recommend keeping it on airplane mode.

We currently do not offer a shuttle service from any location. We encourage you to organize carpools with friends and congregation members!

The nuclear family cap is $500 for family+ camps (family and grand camps) and $1000 for youth camps. The cap is not automatic. Please email our office to apply cap. We offer financial support for all camps and retreats. Please fill out the Campership Request form linked above. Contact our office at or (208) 886-7657 for assistance or more information.

Keeping food or sugary drinks in the cabins is an invitation for critters and bugs to join you! We ask that all snacks be kept at home. We have Canteen open twice/day for campers to purchase snacks such as fruit snacks, chips, juice boxes, granola bars, and ice cream. You can put money onto your camper's Canteen balance during online registration, or by bringing cash or check to camp. Should your camper have dietary needs that require certain snacks, please email to develop a plan to meet your camper's needs.

Camp is dirt terrain, and while the trails around camp are smoothed down, it can still be rocky. We recommend closed-toe and closed-back shoes. Campers in our youth programming (grades 1-12) must have a pair of tennis shoes or hiking boots to wear around camp, hiking the trails, and while horseback riding. Sandals are acceptable for beach day and walking to the bath houses.

We have updated about half of our cabins to include restrooms and showers, as well as electric hand dryers. There are two bathhouses (men and women's) on both sides of camp with multiple toilets, sinks and showers that are within walking distance of all the cabins.

Our main lodge (Sawtooth) has modern bathrooms and electric hand dryers to cut down on paper use. Sawtooth Lodge also has a filtered water bottle drinking fountain.

  • Breakfast is at 8 am each morning and may be pancakes or French toast with sausage links and scrambled eggs. A bowl of mixed fruit is usually available. Cereal, oatmeal, and yogurt are always available. Milk and juice are also served.
  • Lunch is 12 Noon. Often, campers will "pack-out" their lunch to eat on the trails. A sack lunch includes a meat and cheese sandwich, a bag of chips, a piece of fruit, and a cookie. Beach day lunch is a cookout on the shores of Alturas Lake, serving up hamburgers or hot dogs, chips, baked beans, watermelon and cookies.
  • Dinner is at 6 pm each evening. Our cooks do a fantastic job of serving variety throughout the week, including homemade pizza, tacos, lasagna, or pulled pork sandwiches. Side dishes could include salad, roasted veggies, potatoes, and seasonal fruit. Dessert is always a surprise.

We do our best to accommodate any food allergies. Please note any allergies in your registration forms. Vegetarian and vegan meals can be prepared upon request. Our kitchen is food sensitive, and we do our best to accommodate gluten, nut, dairy and other allergies. Please contact our Food Service Manager at at least two weeks before the program begins.

We have bunks in our log cabins with a twin-sized mattress. Please bring a sleeping bag or bedding for your mattress. It can dip to low temperatures at night, even into the 30s during the summer because we're at 7,200' elevation, so please ensure your bedding will be warm enough.

Registration for all camps and retreats is from 4 - 6 p.m. on the first day. Departure is from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. on the last day of camp.

You can request a Cabinmate when you register so you can be in the same cabin with your friend (of same programs/genders)! Invite all your friends to experience a week at Luther Heights!
