Whitewater Rafting

On Tuesdays we go rafting from Sunbeam Village down the Salmon River for a half-day with White Otter Outdoor Adventures. White Otter generously makes it affordable to include a day of rafting in our camps. Unfortunately, parents are not invited to join our day of rafting. Parents may however arrange to go rafting with White Otter on their own. For more information call White Otter Adventures at 208-788-5005.

Camp protocol

At Galena, we try to work with our campers to resolve issues as they occur. For instance, if a child uses bad language our counselors will talk to the child, have the child apologize and warn the child if this continues she/he will be asked to leave. Parents are not called at the first sign of trouble because we are not usually in the vicinity of a phone, and because we believe that teaching children to act responsibly in the absence of their guardians is a crucial part of growing up. If the child repeats the behavior- parents will be called as soon as possible and asked to pick up their child.
