Alpine 4-H Camp was envisioned in the early part of the 1950’s. Extension educators saw the need for a camp to serve 4-H members.
The original camp was a Civilian Conservation Corp camp from the 1930’s. There was one building on the camp which was used as a commissary (it has since been removed). Tents were used for sleeping areas in the beginning.
There are several buildings on the camp now.
- The lodge is used for cooking, eating and other activities.
- The craft building is used for instruction purposes, and the geology building is also used for instruction.
- Two restrooms with showers, 10 sleeping cabins in the boys (east) area, 14 cabins in the girls area (west), other storage buildings and a rifle shooting range and archery range are also part of the camp.
The camp has served the youth of southeast Idaho for over sixty years, giving them the experience of going to camp and enjoying the beauties of the area.
