Summer camp is an 11-week long recreation-based program that runs Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., June 1 through August 13. Campers will participate in sports, outdoor adventures, biking, cooperative games, and art projects in an encouraging and friendly environment based out of the Community Campus in Hailey. Campers are encouraged to bring their own bike and helmet to camp so they can adventure to local parks and enjoy the out-of-doors as much as possible. This year, summer camp will have shortened hours and no camp on Fridays to allow the staff to deep clean facilities.  Protocols have been established to maintain a safe and clean environment and small, mini-camp groups will operate weekly separate from other groups in their own space at the Community Campus to maintain safety.  Staff and campers will focus on outdoor activities and wear masks while indoors.  Additionally, registration is required in advance and no drop-ins are allowed.  Campers can only sign up for individual weeks or the entire summer. The cost for the entire 11-week summer day camp program is only $1232, or a weekly session is $120.  For more information or to ...

FREE Guided Tours: Garden of Infinite Compassion @ Sawtooth Botanical Garden
10:00 am
Welcome to the Garden of Infinite Compassion. This Garden was created in September 2005 to honor the visit of the Dalai Lama to the Wood River Valley. A contemplative garden, it is a place of both inner and outer repose; it is a place where we abandon the chatter of our minds and the distractions of our lives to enter the serenity of nature and find the calm of a quiet mind. The Rocks There are sixteen dominant rocks in the Garden which represent the sixteen Arhats, or disciples, of the Buddha.  The impressive rocks serve as silent sentinels but also serve to retain the soil as the slope drops six feet from the top of the stream to the bottom. The Serenity Pond The Serenity Pond features riparian plants while nearby a memorial bench sits in the aspen grove as a place for quiet contemplation.  In the center of the pond is a beautiful quartz crystal from Minas Gerais, Brazil.  The crystal’s tip was broken, most likely, by earth movement during its formation millions of years ago. Because the crystal was still forming when the break occurred, it began reforming or re-healing the tip. The tip that reformed however ...
