Darby Girls Camp is located in Darby Canyon about 10 miles east of Driggs, Idaho, on US Forest Service Property near a nice stream on about 16 acres of forest. The camp has a lodge, suitable for meetings, but not for cooking or sleeping. Lodge amenities include: stage, piano, benches, large fireplace as well as banquet tables and chairs for meal setup or craft/humanitarian activities. The lodge also has a sound system available when the generator is running.
There are 11 cabins with bunk springs (some mattresses) for sleeping - no cooking facilities inside. Each campsite includes a cabin, several tent pads, picnic tables and benches, fire pit and a water tap with attached drinking fountain. Each cabin has electric lights (from a generator) and a bear-proof food storage unit where all food is to be stored. Three new restroom and shower facilities are available.
The two main units are typically reserved for women and the unit on the south side of the road for men. The camp includes a long slide from near the lodge to the lower level of the camp. The lower level is a large grassy meadow for play or a fireside around the large meadow campfire pit (with benches). New features in the meadow include: a nice volleyball court, new swing set, teeter-totters, five confidence course events and an archery range.
Also new at Darby is a hillside amphitheater off the upper parking lot. This is a beautiful and serene setting for sunrise services or other reverent gatherings. World class hiking is available in the nearby Jedediah Smith Wilderness as well as many other non-wilderness hikes. U.S. Forest Service law applies to all wilderness hiking – no more than 20 hikers in any one group – mandatory!
“To feel the Spirit of Darby is to understand the real meaning of peace and beauty. Darby has been called a temple where the work of God is manifest. It is a majestic mountain camp where Young Women can feel exceptionally close to God, where yesterdays intertwine with tomorrow. It is a place where lives are touched and testimonies are strengthened.” May the Spirit of Darby change your life forever.
