Natural Resource Camp
Due to the University of Idaho's COVID-19 policy on gatherings of 10 or more over the next eight weeks, speaker and participant travel limitations, and other concerns associated with COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Natural Resource Camp. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the camp director or assistant director. We hope that you will join us for camp in 2021.
Come to the beautiful Sawtooth National Recreation Area, one of our nation’s premier backcountry playgrounds and stay in rustic cabins with new friends. Eat in a historic log lodge. Learn about Idaho’s magnificent natural resources and recreate in the forests and meadows of the dazzling Boulder Mountains.
Applications for the 2020 Natural Resource Camp are now being accepted. Don’t miss out on your chance to participate in an extraordinary experience.
