Camp Reiter ~ Obsidian
Summer Camp 2020
Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho ~ Chemeketan Campground
Friday August 7 - Friday August 14
Looking across Sawtooth Lake at Mt. Regan
We are going back to the Sawtooths of Idaho for Obsidian Summer Camp for the 6th
time. Rick Ahrens’ summer
camp history shows five previous Summer Camps in the Sawtooths - Camp Chase in
1961 at Redfish Lake, Camp Lowry in 1983 up the Yankee Fork of the Salmon at the
Bonanza Campground, Camp Montgomery in 1994 at the Chemeketan Campground, the
Three Sages Camp in 2000 (Chemeketan CG) and Camp Hamilton in 2008 (Bonanza CG).
I have attended the last four of those camps and look forward to
returning to one of my favorite Summer Camp locations at the Chemeketan CG.
The Chemeketan Campground, between Stanley and Ketchum, Idaho, is at the
headwaters of the Salmon River. There is something for everybody in the
Sawtooths! Hiking, kayaking, rafting, mountain biking, soaking in hot springs,
climbing Mt. Borah (Idaho’s highest peak) , viewing wildlife, visiting the
Yankee Fork dredge and Custer ghost town, taking the boat across Redfish Lake to
hike or rock climb and possibly visiting the White Clouds Mountains.
Watch the March Obsidian Bulletin and this page for more information
