WHERE: Central, Idaho
We are welcoming you to our very own backyard training grounds - technical 12,000 ft peaks, natural Idaho hot springs, refreshing mountain lakes, stunning untouched wilderness, minimal public exposure.
Beginner Camp will be based out of the Burnt Creek Cabin in Clayton, Idaho. This is a rustic cabin located within 10 minutes of main wilderness access used for camp with several hotspring options within 10 minutes, and trail access located right off the property for additional skill building. The cabin has 3 large bedrooms with bunk style accommodations that will be shared amongst 10 camp attendees, with 2 full bathrooms. This is a rustic location with basic accommodations, but provides a close-knit atmosphere. All meals will be provided thanks to our onsite Camp Chef (can cater to dietary needs).
SWAG: Generous Swag provided thanks to our Sponsors!

***Each camp hosts 10 participants

*Beginner Camp attendee requirements: This is meant for any and all participants! Whether you are a seasoned athlete, but get wobbly knees on rocky terrain or with heights or exposure, to being a city-dweller having no experience in mountainous terrain :) this camp is for you! There will be options to add and take away challenge based on your comfort level, while still achieving summit views (without the exposure), and developing beginner skills on beautiful, lovely scree fields in a safe, comfortable atmosphere.
