How do I get to Intermountain Christian Camp?
ICC is located at the base of beautiful Soldier Mountain, five and a half miles north of Fairfield, ID.
From the North: Travel I-84 S to the Mountain Home exit 95, take highway Us-20 about 56 miles to Fairfield.
From the south: Travel on I-84 W toward JEROME/BOISE, Take the ID-46 EXIT 157, toward WENDELL/GOODING, Turn RIGHT onto ID 46/S IDAHO ST. Continue to follow ID-46 about 45 miles, then Turn LEFT onto US-20, after about 4 miles you’ll see Fairfield on the right.
When you arrive in Fairfield, turn north on Soldier Road (which is the paved road that goes through the business part of town). Go two miles to the stop sign, turn right, go about a quarter mile and turn left which puts you back on Soldier Road.(Please note: the speed limit on this road is 50 mph). Continue about 3 miles. You’ll see the sign over our driveway and flags flying on the left side of the road.
What happens during an average summer day at ICC?
At ICC, campers spend their time attending classes and other planned activities. This includes recreational activities such as swimming in the creek or pool (depending on age, fully supervised), hiking, bike riding, volleyball, basketball, (paintball- High School Only) and organized group recreation and games. Also, many groups do service projects on site or off site depending on the age group. In addition, campers can expect to attend a main session lesson service, fun evening activities, and campfire.
Do I need to send extra money with my child?
Campers are generally fed a snack in the evening after supper, however, we do have a “Snack Shack” that offers soda, sports drinks, and candy. We also sell t-shirts and hooded sweatshirts. This “Snack Shack” is optional and does require extra money. ICC encourages campers to give money to missions as well. Some camps require campers to turn in money at the beginning of the week and every time a camper purchases from the snack shack or directs the leader to donate to missions it is subtracted from their total. Please note: The camp will not be responsible for money any camper holds on to themselves.
What if I need to contact my child while they are at camp?
If you need to reach your child while they are at camp, please write them or call the camp (208) 764-2204 . We will get the message to them ASAP. Please do not send cell phones to camp with your child, as these tend to be a distraction and a temptation to other campers.

What do I need to know about Medical Insurance and Policies?
Your family or individual health insurance policy is the primary coverage for accidents and injuries. A health officer will be on duty at the camp, and medical facilities are nearby. The health information on the Registration Form must be completed and signed by a parent or legal guardian before admission to the camp. All medications must be turned in to the camp health officer upon entering the camp and will be dispensed by the health officer.
Can my child attend a camp if he/she is not in that age group?
We encourage all students to attend with the age group they belong to, based on the grade they are going into. Exceptions will only be made by the Camp Director of these weeks on a case by case basis. Please contact the Camp Director at the numbers listed below if you have more questions about this.
Can I come and help at ICC?
At each week, we have a few open spots for teen helpers. Teen Helpers are unpaid volunteers who come to serve God for a week by serving others. Main responsibilities include: serving food, setting tables, washing dishes, serving snacks, game set-up, bathroom cleaning, team leaders and other tasks that the Camp Directors may assign. These positions are open on a first come, first serve basis, at the discretion of the Camp Director. Camp Directors are always in search of adult help as well. If you are interested in serving for a week please contact the Camp Director for the week you want to work, their phone numbers are listed below.
