5th-Grade Outdoor Adventure

COVID-19 Update: For parents and families registered for camp, we’ve put together an Info Guide that lays out in more detail what you can expect from this 2020 summer season, which will be modified for optimal safety and health protocols. Please note that these guidelines are subject to change. We also encourage you to view our updated Cancellation Policy. Please contact us for more information.

For every 5th-grade enrolled in public school in three Idaho counties, our Outdoor Adventure program offer three days and two nights of outdoor adventure education at IBC’s Big Lost Campus.

From morning mindfulness in our sustainable Borah Basin building, to learning how to build shelters and start fires, to team-building games, to STEAM-aligned curriculum in the outdoor classroom, these students are fully immersed in the outdoors, creating a strong connection with the surrounding wilderness. Through their experience, they go home with a greater sense of how to embody our core values in their daily lives: Personal Responsibility, Courage, and Respect for All.  

This program currently takes place the beginning of each May and serves 5th-grade students in every public school in Blaine, Custer, and Lemhi County. We’re proud to have welcomed over 450 students in 2019 to our Big Lost Campus.

This program is made possible by the generosity of the Sahm Family Foundation
