Camp Cumorah is located some 24 miles southeast of Ammon, Idaho, in the Bone area. The campsite is within a wooded area populated with quaking aspens, lodgepole pines, and Douglas firs. It is surrounded by 1600 acres of Church-owned ranch property. The camp area of 29 acres is enclosed by fence to isolate it from the surrounding ranch, which is used for livestock grazing. The elevation is 6300 feet. From May through September, access to the camp is achieved by traveling along improved roads. The camp includes:
• Beautiful lodge—300 seating capacity with a kitchen, restrooms, and showers.
• Twelve campsites with electricity, culinary well water, 3–5 leveled tent sites, fire pit with log seating, and sheltered cement pads with picnic tables.
• Additional women’s and men’s restrooms and showers.
• Small reservoir for swimming and canoeing.
• Marked hiking trails from 2 to 10 miles (see maps).
The primary purpose of Camp Cumorah is to provide outdoor experiences for young women that will promote their spiritual, social, and cultural development. This camp accommodates Young Women camps during the summer weekdays, Monday through Friday morning. Church groups and family reunions that meet Church standards of conduct may also use the facility by making reservations for open calendar days.
Standards of Conduct
The camp has been dedicated for the primary purpose of providing outdoor experiences that will offer Young Women a greater appreciation for the beauties of nature in a setting that will promote spiritual development. In order to meet these objectives, Church standards must be maintained by all users. These standards include the restriction of alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drug use and the avoidance of any conduct that would be contrary to an uplifting environment.
Church dress standards are also to be observed by all those who use the camp. See For the Strength of Youth.
