About the Mountain Discovery Program

The first Mountain Discovery Camp was piloted in 2007, shortly after the initial success of SnowSchool.   We saw the potential for Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area to be a local hot spot for Treasure Valley kids to find their passion for the outdoors.  And while the SnowSchool program introduces thousands of students to the mountain environment, the summer Mountain Discovery Camp allows these explorations to go much deeper.  Through the summer program kids spend 5 days exploring the wonders of the mountain forest.  Through our partnership with the City of Boise Parks and Recreation Department participants meet each morning of camp at Fort Boise Community Center and return from the mountain in the afternoon.  To sign a child up for camp please follow the link below and Keyword Search: mountain discovery. Mountain Discovery Camp and Teen Camp will be the first two camps listed:


In September and October our fall Mountain Discovery program invites middle and elementary school teachers to bring their students to Bogus Basin for a day of outdoor team-building adventures.  To arrange a field trip contact- ilyse@bogusbasin.org
