Snake River Days
Snake River Days is an incredibly fun, adventure-filled, and active five day camp for middle school age youth (entering 6th – 8th grade). An introduction to the Snake River watershed through activities and experiences that include river hydrology, flat water canoeing and kayaking, aquatic entomology (bugs), fly fishing, plant, mammal and bird exploration, and floating scenic and whitewater sections of the Snake River. An overnight camping trip along the Snake River is included. Staffed by Snake River Fund and Parks and Recreation staff, this program will only accept a maximum of 18 students.
