White Water Adventure
The Snake River Council will began accepting reservations for 2016 whitewater trips on November 8, 2016 at 9:00 am. Call the office at (208) 733-2067 to reserve spots on the trip. Call promptly (and keep calling if the lines are busy)! Spots usually fill within 10 minutes. Voicemail messages left before 9:00am will not be accepted for reservations. Walk-in reservations are not accepted.
The cost for a whitewater spot is $530.00 for youth and $685.00 for adults. This is a significant cut from the usual $1800/week fee charged by other outfitters. Please fill the spots with as many youth as possible. We have a special permit from the Forest Service because our spots are primarily filled by youth.
Once you make a reservation on November 10, you will have 7 days to pay the initial $75.00/person reservation fee. Payment should be remitted to the Snake River Council Service Center no later than 5:30pm on Monday, November 14, 2016. Unpaid reservations will be re-opened the following morning, November 15, at 9:00am. The same rules listed above apply for reservations made this day.
The payment schedule for 2017 is listed below. Please mark your calendars:
November 14, 2016, 5:30pm – $75.00/person due

Depending on water levels, trips scheduled to begin on July 18, July 25, and July 31, 2017 may require a 12 mile hike down to the river.

Located in the Magic Valley 20 miles southeast of Twin Falls, on the banks of Lake Murtaugh, Camp Murtaugh was acquired by the Snake River Council in 2001. Since that time, many improvements have been made to the site including the addition of a water front area, a COPE course, a shooting range, several campsites, a pavilion (the Holden building), a bathroom facility, a playing field, a volleyball court, a beginner’s BMX bike course, and irrigation to dozens of growing trees. Murtaugh is the site for our council-wide Cub Scout day camp, our spring and fall camporees, our shooting sports and COPE course training, our volunteer-sponsored mud run, and much more.
